Phonetic Transcription Can Help You Improve Your Spanish Pronunciation

Spanish pronunciation is simple compared to other languages. The pronunciation rules in the Spanish language are quite strict, although a few Spanish letters can be pronounced in different ways.

This online translator allows you to convert Spanish text to phonetic transcription using International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) symbols. By the way, dictionaries do not typically provide the phonetic transcription of Spanish words.

This tool will serve as a Spanish pronunciation guide. It will help you save time during your first steps in Spanish, while you are still learning the pronunciation rules. If you use the phonetic transcription regularly in combination with Spanish audio and video recordings, your pronunciation and listening skills in the Spanish language will improve.

A great way to improve your Spanish pronunciation is to use our Spanish video vocabulary builder. It is designed for beginners and has Spanish subtitles for all lessons, including phonetic transcription.

The algorithm of this phonetic translator is based on the Spanish pronunciation rules as they are described in the book Manual de fonética y fonología españolas. The book is in Spanish, and it's really one of the best you can find on the topic.
