Spanish translation:Pan & Scan / Letterbox
Explanation:
I'm not sure if you're translating a text or simply want to understand the term. If it's the first, then in the instruction manual to my Pioneer DVD player, the terms are left in English with the following explanation:

Letter Box
La presentación Letter Box pone franjas negras en la parte superior e inferior de la pantalla para proporcionar la presentación de una pantalla ancha completa en un televisor estándar (relación de aspect 4:3).

Pan & Scan
La presentación Pan & Scan recorta ambos lados de la presentación de pantalla ancha para utilizar toda la pantalla del televisor estándar.

Anyway, I hope this is some use to you.
All the best,
Paul
