Aunque se puede traducir al inglés por although, though, even though o even if.
Por regla general, cuando la cláusula introducida por aunque indica un hecho (aunque + indicativo), en inglés coloquial se traduce por though y en lenguaje más formal por although:
Aunque había un montón de gente, al final pude encontrar a Carlos Though there were a lot of people there, I managed to find Carlos
No esperaba eso de él, aunque entiendo por qué lo hizo I did not expect that from him, although I can understand why he did it
Even though introduce la oración subordinada, enfatizando con más fuerza el contraste con la principal, cuando aunque va seguido de un hecho concreto, no una hipótesis, y equivale a a pesar de que:
Llevaba un abrigo de piel, aunque era un día muy caluroso She wore a fur coat, even though it was a very hot day
Si aunque tiene el sentido de incluso si (aunque + subjuntivo), se traduce por even if:
Debes ir, aunque no quieras You must go, even if you don't want to
Me dijo que no me lo diría, aunque lo supiera He said he wouldn't tell me even if he knew
