Spanish Vocabulary: Web Designers vs. Web Developers
There is a difference between a web designer and a web developer. While both of them work to create amazing websites, they do very different things. Creating a website is not easy! The web designer and the web developer use different tools to do their job. I’ve prepared a list of vocabulary related to these two jobs so that you know exactly what you’re talking about next time you mention a website in Spanish!
Web Designer – El Diseñador Web
Web designers focus on the aesthetic part of the website. They use different software to create stunning designs that impress audiences. Of course it’s not all just about pretty colors and beautiful images. Web designers have to look at the website from a reader’s perspective and work to improve what’s called the “user experience,” which often leads to higher traffic and higher conversions or sales.
When a web designer talks about a website in Spanish, this is the vocabulary they’re likely to use:
|La paleta de colores||Color palette|
|La rueda de colores||Color wheel|
|La marca de agua||Watermark|
Web Developer – El Desarrollador Web
Here is the vocabulary that a web developer uses when talking about a website in Spanish:
|La base de datos||Database|
|La dirección IP||IP address|
|El lenguaje de programación||Programming language|
|La experiencia de usuario||User experience|
