when


Explanation:
As this word is a basic building block of the Spanish language (as common as "when" is in English), you might be better served using the dictionary link above rather than asking at this site, which is designed for more advanced questions. Just a suggestion... thanks!

neutral  Robin Levey: This site is designed to deal with 'non-pro' and 'homework' questions - and this one is indeed marked 'no pro'. Also, your answer is overly simplistic and may lead asker astray...

if


Explanation:
'cuando' *usually* means 'when' - but it can also mean 'if' or 'provided that' (for example if it is preceded by 'siempre')

'cuando' can sometimes best be translated by other English words, too. It all depends on the context and the style and structure of the complete sentence.
