Common Spanish Phrases

Here’s a page for learning very common Spanish phrases.

How do You Say “Pain in the Neck or Ass” in Spanish?

Directly translating common English figures of speech into Spanish usually doesn’t work. For example, a “Pain in the Neck” in English when translated literally into Spanish doesn’t make sense at all.

Instead they say a phrase “dolor de muelas” which translates directly to “Pain in the Molar”.


Key Takeaways:

  • Figures of speech in English rarely translate directly to Spanish.
  • In Latin America it’s common to say: “dolor de cabeza”, which translates directly to “pain of head”
  • In English we say “pain in the ass” and in Spanish it’s a  “pimple on the ass”or “grano en el culo.”

Key Quote:

“Spanish speakers don’t say “pain in the neck” to mean pain in the neck, they say that something is a pain in the molars, they say: “dolor de muelas””
