You don't. It does nothing for anyone to try to translate a location name unless it already has a recognized "foreign name" such as "Londres" for "London".

Imagine trying to find "juzgado maneja" (court drive) on Google maps. I don't think you'd have a very useful response.

That with the google maps might be a fun experiment. I wonder where all one might land! - Janice, MAY 22, 2010

Buenas días cdp, ian is correct. This topic came up in my Spanish 1 class and la professora said if you are using street in the proper sense as an address, you would not translate and you would capitalize it.

5000 Hollywood Avenue 5010 Ventura Way 5020 Aspen Street 5030 Wood Road

There are a lot of nouns describing street, highway, freeway but in the general sense not the proper sense.

I don't think you can - we have had this question before.
