For what it is worth, I often send my original English and follow it with
the machine translation.

OpenOffice and most (all?) other word-processors do not handle translation

You need to Copy and Paste your text from OpenOffice into a translation
application, such as Google Translate or Promt (in chunks of about 1000
words - depending on the requirements of the translation application); when
that has translated it into your target language  Copy and Paste into a new
OpenOffice document.  You will have to check the formatting, and also check
the translation, as all translations are imperfect.  

If you do not speak Spanish, do not send the un-revised translation out -
send the text in English and let the recipients translate it themselves.
