You’ve finished Latin American Spanish Level 2 by Pimsleur, added Spanish-language Netflix movies to your queue, and are just beginning to make Spanish-speaking friends. But now you immediately understand you’re in over your head when a remark on your photo reads “k linda t ves! tkm, cdt”! Do you require assistance with Spanish texting acronyms? Are you concerned that your SMS message will come off as insincere or robotic? We have your back. Let’s practice texting in Spanish.
Spanish Texting Techniques
Let’s be clear that SMS is practically extinct in Latin America before we continue. Cell phone contracts for a month or a year are nearly unheard of. Many people use pay-as-you-go methods and apps like Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp to send free messages.
When someone asks me, “How do I say “texting” in Spanish,” I normally respond, “Some Latinos say textear, even though it’s not yet an official word,” but Mándame un Whatsapp/mensaje is more typical. Send me a WhatsApp or text message. Since a message may be sent using an online service, it is more widely received.
The demise of old-school SMS does not always mean that acronyms are extinct. Just now, they switched platforms. The acronyms you’ll need to text in Spanish successfully are listed below.

Porque = pq, pk, xq, xk? (Why?)
You may be aware that there are four ways to spell the word porque in Spanish: porque, porqué, por qué, and por que. These minute distinctions are meaningless in the texting world.
It turns out that porque can also be written as pq, pk, xq, or xk.
The q frequently takes the place of the k, as seen in tkm.
When referring to multiplication, the letter x is used in place of the word por. For instance, consider the phrase “3 x 4.” The phrase “3 times 4” is used in English, but “3 por 4” is used in Spanish.
