Teacher Created Materials offers products in both English and Spanish to help students develop the language proficiency skills needed to be successful, life-long learners.
Our Spanish translations are adapted from English with careful consideration given to audience, grade level, and complexity. We use professional native Spanish translators, reference the Real Academia Española, and use RAE Ortografía as a style guide. We use neutral vocabulary that would be recognizable in North America (vs. South America or Spain). Translations are not done word for word. Poems and songs are adapted from English to convey an appropriate rhyme and rhythm in Spanish.
