Thank you for posting these - good to look at the pictures anyway!

Unfortunately that doesn't seem to be a pdf download, only visible in magazine mode on doopaper. Google Translate couldn't cope with that when I tried.

The same applies to REVISTA DE FILATELIA.

Well, it will take a little effort ... a table with philatelic terms in several languages ...
https://www.stampshows.com/translate.html
A small English-Spanish school dictionary ...
https://www.collinsdictionary.com/dictionary/english-spanish
or ... the Google Translate ...
https://translate.google.com/
...and I think it will not only be seeing photos...

...but, I insist, it will take a little effort. :wink:

Thank you, yes. I have Google Translate in regular use, and I have plenty of dictionaries.

Actually if it isn't downloadable, like others, then I shall use the Google Translate (+camera) app in the iPad as mentioned earlier. It should work, if the image is recognised as text.
