Translation of words

Is there a part of Duolingo that translates words? I didn't know some certain words and I wanted to look them up on a reliable translation site (i.e. Duolingo). If anyone knows how to do this, please share.

On Duolingo, you could just look at the words section - https://www.duolingo.com/words It shows all the words you have already encountered on here and their translations but not others.

Dictionary would be highly recommended for this purpose. You could also refer to Google Translate (https://translate.google.com) or http://www.spanishdict.com/ online.

its easy! you just hover on the words and you will see the translation. Warning: the more you hover on the words, the less time you will be strengthened.

how reliable is google translate if i were to use that?

It may not be ideal or reliable for entire sentences (though it's getting better all the time). However, you asked for words and for that purpose, I have found Google Translate to be reasonably good.

it isn't so good for sentences, but it is for words
