Answer: Hi Sonali,
Good to see your interest in doing some work and utilizing your time productively, well there are many places where you can find translation jobs.
Your 1st step would be do some more practice of English to Spanish translation and get more hands on experience, then you can go on freelance websites like GetaFreelancer and register yourself as service provide, after registering you can actually bid on the projects which are already opened there.
The other way to find translation jobs is, news paper classifieds, there are people who are looking for freelance translators, you can contact them for work.
Just make sure you are well prepared before taking any assignments, because once you get project, and if you do not perform well, you will never get project from that client. You can also read article on translation jobs in India.
