Where can I go to learn how to translate from Spanish to English for little to no cost? I am looking for online training only.

This is difficult to answer without knowing what level you're starting from. If you already speak your second language fluently and are looking to "refine" some of the linguistic issues that come up in translation, then you might want to have a look at some of the material put up on line by universities offering language/translation courses, plus browse chapters of translation studies books available on Google books and then buy any you think look useful. (Remember not everything has to be "free on line"-- it is also socially acceptable to pay money for things in the hope of a return on your investment.)
On the other hand, if you're learning "ab initio", then you need to bear in mind that you're looking at several years of dedication to get to the point where you can understand a second language fluently enough to translate anything other than completely trivial sentences.
