This phrase translates to “thanks a lot” but can also mean “thank you very much.” Let’s say you are in line at a Subway and you order and attempt to pay for your order, but your card declines for some reason.

What about “you’re welcome?”
Here are some ways to say you’re welcome in Spanish.
8. You’re welcome – De nada
- De nada.
- Pronunciation: Day Nah-Dah
The best way to say you’re welcome in Spanish.
This phrase is the most common response to “thank you.” “De nada” literally translates to “from nothing” but it is used to mean “you are welcome.” When someone says “gracias”, you may respond with “de nada”. Your response to a “thank you” will never go wrong in Spanish because it is very universal.
9. No problem – No hay problema
- No hay problema.
- Pronunciation: No Ay Pro-blem-ah
This is the next best way to say you’re welcome in Spanish.
It translates to “no problem.” It may be used when you genuinely do a favor for a friend, family, or co-worker and you are thanked for it. When anyone thanks you after a good deed like taking out the garbage or mowing the lawn for free, you may respond with “no hay problema.”
10. It’s nothing – Por nada
- Por nada.
- Pronunciation: Poor Nah-Dah
This phrase is similar to the “de nada”. It literally translates to “of nothing.” This phrase is rarely heard and said so it may catch you by surprise when you hear “por nada”. When someone has helped you move a couple of boxes from the storage to your attic and you are thanked for it, you may respond “por nada” instead of using the common “de nada” if you prefer.
11. Don’t mention it – No hay de que
- No hay de que.
- Pronunciation: No Ay De-Ke
This phrase is commonly used in Ecuador and surrounding countries. This phrase has a double meaning if you translate it to English because it can mean “you’re welcome” but also “don’t mention it.” If you are ever thanked for doing a simple favor like taking out the trash, you may respond with “no hay de que.”
12. Don’t mention it – No lo menciones
- No lo menciones.
- Pronunciation: No Low Men-See-Oh-Nes

- No se preocupe./No te preocupes.
- Pronunciation: No Seh Pre-Oh-Ku-Pez

14. With pleasure – Con gusto
- Con gusto.
- Pronunciation: Kone Goose-Toh
This phrase translates to “with pleasure.” This is a formal way of saying “you’re welcome” and can be used when you have a favor for someone you really care about. When you wake up early in the morning to prepare breakfast for your significant other and you are thanked for it, you may respond with “con gusto”. You may also add “mucho” to that phrase to say “con mucho gusto” which translates to “with much pleasure.”
15. It’s my pleasure – Es mi placer
- Es mi placer.
- Pronunciation: Es Me Plah-Ser
This phrase is translates to “it is my pleasure.” This is another formal way of saying “you are welcome.” When you have completed a favor for someone you don’t mind assisting and are thanked for it, you may respond with “es mi placer.”

17. With pleasure – Mucho gusto
- Mucho gusto.
- Pronunciation: Moo-Cho Goose-Toh
This phrase is a bit tricky because you may have heard it when you have just met someone.
