Hmm. TeX itself does not seem to recognize $\sen(x)$ -- at least mine doesn't. I've read some Spanish math papers, and have not seen that name for that function. You could define a macro giving an (upright) sen(x) which would function as well as $\sin(x)$. How many different names are involved? What do you call $\log(x)$ in Spanish?
