My work is mainly focused in interpreting, but for the occasional translating stuff, I’ll go lazy and use this site: http://www.spanish-translator-services.com/espanol/traductor-gratis.htm
It’s actually pretty solid. The Microsoft built in translator is also surprisingly good. ProZ.com works too, but that site is a little more funky to get around in with a screen reader last I tried.
Keeping in mind other factors like localization and register. I.E. The Spanish spoken in Mexico or Argentina, Cuba, Spain, etc will vary in idioms/slang and the level of education and so on.
The services I mentioned above are good for a foundation to work off of, but for more formal translation work, it’s not just a copy and paste job. You have to know what you’re talking about. But for casual communication or in a pinch, they’d more or less get the job done.
This is off the PC of course. The Google translate iOS app would be my choice for mobile, but they for whatever reason only offer Castilian Spanish which for the Latin American Spanish ear can be . . . tedious to listen to. That probably wouldn’t matter in this case though.

If you have an iPhone (and probably Android), the Google Translate app is pretty amazing.
You can either type or speak and have the app instantly translate into dozens of language options.
I was playing with it at a Chinese restaurant the other day. Both the staff and I were amazed at how well it worked.
