google translate gives siempre que as its favorite alternative, and a few others.

You might want to check out the answer and examples from these discussions on siempre que + subjunctive. The provided explanations are good.

Hi! I am from Spain and also I am learning English. The answer of Rob2042 was correct, "as long as" is usually translated as "siempre que" or "siempre y cuando" (for example "We will work as long as you pay us." > "Nosotros trabajaremos siempre y cuando nos paguen."

Thanks, Alberto. Always good to get a confirmation from an hispanohablante.

I heard someone say "Como se dice" yesterday, so the translation would be helpful to me too.

It means, "How does one say".
