The \textsf{Spanglish} ``language'' is a compromise between the use of the
Spanish language in writing and English mathematical support for LaTeX.
You may see it as a form of Spanish text with English mathematics
---or viceversa.

Therefore, there are no Spanish mathematical features supported (no accented
operators, no decimal comma), and there is (probably less than) minimal
Spanish language support for text,
activating Spanish hyphenation, captions, date, frenchspacing, indentfirst,
symbolic footnotes, lowercase roman numerals,
and a few shorthands to improve hyphenation.
All other typographic decisions are left to other macro packages
according to user's taste (or lack thereof).

There is a conscious effort to make this ``language'' upwards compatible with
the ``standard'' Spanish language definition, so the shorthands implemented here
are but a very narrow subset of the standard Spanish language:
those strictly necessary to handle Spanish hyphenation properly,
and a few extras to straighten the text a little in a Spanish layout and support
plain ASCII input in LaTeX.
So, in a sense, this ``language'' is a very stripped down or ultra-sloppy
version of the ``standard'' spanish.ldf, conceived mostly as a fallback
or a ``poor man's'' Spanish.

There are two attributes/modifiers enabled for this ``language'': asc (ASCII shorthands)
and nt (NTilde), designed to improve support of ASCII input.
ASC activates all shorthands convenient to input Spanish with plain ASCII
characters: this modifier supersedes the need to call the activeacute option
from Babel;
NT supports the input of Spanish \~n with the tilde ~n.
Both modifiers are provided for backwards compatibility, assuming that most
Spanish users actually choose a suitable 8bit input and font encoding.

ba­bel-span­glish – Sim­pli­fied Span­ish sup­port for Ba­bel

The pack­age pro­vides very sim­pli­fied (or ul­tra sloppy) sup­port for Span­ish in Ba­bel, mostly as a fall­back in case span­ish.ldf fails for some rea­son. The pack­age pro­vides ba­sic sup­port for Span­ish hy­phen­ation, cap­tions, date, frenchspac­ing, in­dent­first, sym­bolic foot­notes, enu­mer­a­tions, small caps ro­man nu­mer­als, and a hand­ful of short­hands and Span­ish math­e­mat­i­cal op­er­a­tors. No op­tions or at­tributes for cus­tomiza­tion are pro­vided.
