Is there a way to change the wording to english on the spanish site or is it just a case of google translate.

Spanish only, SFAIK.
Google (or whichever search engine) may bounce pages into English.

I find Google Translate works very well. Also the Amazon search box usually accepts an English search even if the results may be limited. If you're not sure of correct Spanish words to search for, the English search will probably throw up some products with the correct Spanish description which you can then enter into the search box.

The product names (eg Smith's WhatNot 12v Deluxe Black) are the same across all the Amazon sites.
This helps because you can search for something on the UK site, and when it's found copy its product name into the Search box of eg Amazon.es.

If you use (or install) the Chrome browser, you can also install the Google Translate extension -
(https://chrome.google.com/webstore/cate ... ions?hl=en)
On some websites (eg. Amazon.de), It automatically translates the page on opening but I just tried Amazon.es and it didn't but you simply click the Google Translate icon in the top bar and choose 'Translate Page'.

I've tried this out and it seems to work very well. I put in a search for Plugs - thinking electrical and got: Babysbreath Adultos Silicona Backside **** Plug Sucker **** Beads Sexo **** Plug. Hmmm...
