Other translations I have found include espejo semitransparente, espejo semirreflectante, espejo espía, luna de efecto espejo, ventana espejo, and espejo de dos lunas. I can vouch for none of them.

James is right: the only case where the light only goes in one direction is when you get total internal reflection. These TWO-way mirrors basically are mirrors that allow a significant percentage of light to get through (no mirror is perfect anyway), so enough light from the bright room with the suspects goes through to the guys in the dark room, which has so little light, that the amount that goes to the bright room is negligible in comparison, which is why people can't barely see anything. Turn on the lights on the police side, and the suspects will be able to see everything.

I am not sure what the correct term is, but people call it "espejo falso" (even though it is not), and in parts of South America (at least) "espejos de doble faz".

Um, what exactly is a one-way mirror? Logically, it would be just a regular mirror, or espejo, which can only be used from one side. A two-way mirror, on the other hand, is what police use to watch suspects being interrogated, for example.

Espejo de una vía. I think that is how you say it.
