How Do You Say @ in Spanish?

By May 23, 2011

Follow me on:

It's a question that has come up in e-mail and our forum: If you're talking about an e-mail address in Spanish, how to you say @ in Spanish? The answer comes from an Arabic word that has been part of Spanish since long before the Internet existed.

RE: Arroba = 11,502 kilograms

It may perhaps help to mention that in many countries other than US, the comma is used where we use the period (comma is period, and period is comma). So it’s likely that the weight measure will be written 11.502 kg in the United States.

I believe this is what is meant by the definition.

You’re right! That’s what I get for copying and pasting. I’ve changed the comma to a period.
