7 Ways to Say ‘No Problem’ in Spanish


Reassuring people and knowing how to respond to them after they thank us for something are two essential things when it comes to having conversations with other people. That’s why learning different ways to say no problem in Spanish will always come in handy and should be a part of your vocabulary.

On this occasion, I’ve gathered multiple expressions that you can use to say no problem in Spanish. Using them will make you sound more natural in the language, but most importantly, it will make you sound polite and friendly.

1. No hay problema – No problem

‘No hay problema’ is the direct translation of ‘no problem’ or ‘no hassle’. This is one of the standard phrases you can use as a response when someone asks if you’re okay with something. It can be used in any context, however, it’s not as casual as other phrases on this list.

No hay problema + [complement]

No hay problema, puedo esperar.
No problem, I can wait.

No hay problema, pide lo que quieras.
No problem, order whatever you want.

No hay problema, yo te acompaño a tu casa.
No problem, I’ll walk you home.

Take Note: Although ‘no problemo’ may be a cute expression for Spanish learners to use and it might seem like a valid variation, it’s grammatically incorrect. So, you should avoid it.

2. No hay bronca – No biggie 

No hay bronca is Mexican slang for ‘no problem’ and it can be translated as ‘no biggie’ or ‘no worries’. It’s used in informal situations to express to someone that something they’re doing doesn’t bother you. Keep in mind that even in informal contexts, this expression is not used with people that you’re supposed to show respect to, such as parents.

No hay bronca + [complement]

No hay bronca, invita a quien quieras.
No worries, invite whoever you want.

No hay bronca, wey, ya sabes que te apoyamos.
No problem, dude, you know we support you.

No hay bronca, si quieres salimos otro día.
No biggie, we can hang out another day if you want.

Take Note: Another informal way of saying ‘no problem’ in Mexican Spanish is ‘no hay pedo’. However, this expression borders on cursing, so it should only be used in informal contexts and among friends.

3. Sin problemas – No problem

‘Sin problemas’ is very similar to ‘no hay problema’ in its meaning and use. Although its literal translation would be ‘without problems’, a more accurate one would be ‘no problem’. It’s a wonderful phrase to use when someone asks you for a favor and you want to help them and let them know you can do that easily.

Sin problemas + [complement]

Sin problemas, sólo dime el día y la hora.
No problem, just tell me the day and time.

Sin problemas, tengo experiencia en mudanzas.
No problem, I have move-in experience.

Sin problemas, te puedo ayudar en cualquier otra cosa.
No problem, I can help you with anything.

4. No pasa nada – It’s okay

Another way of saying no problem in Spanish is the expression ‘no pasa nada’, which can be translated as “it’s okay”. We Spanish speakers use ‘no pasa nada’ when someone is trying to apologize for something and we want to let them know that there’s nothing wrong. It can be accompanied by the next expression on the list ‘no te preocupes’.

No pasa nada + [complement]

No pasa nada, no te preocupes.
It’s okay, don’t worry.

No pasa nada, sé que estás ocupada.
It’s okay, I know you’re busy.

No pasa nada, podemos ir al cine otro día.
It’s okay, we can go to the movies on another day.

You can also use the variation ‘no es nada’ which directly translates as “it’s nothing”.

No es nada, fue un gusto.

It’s nothing, it was my pleasure.

5. No te preocupes – Don’t worry

Telling someone ‘no te preocupes’ is another good way to express that there’s no problem in Spanish. We typically use this expression when someone thanks us for something we’ve done. Since it means ‘don’t worry’, ‘no te preocupes’ is also a way to reassure someone when they’re apologizing.

Notice that ‘no te preocupes’ is an informal expression to refer to a singular person, but it can be adapted to be formal or plural by changing the reflexive pronoun and conjugating the verb ‘preocupar’ correctly in the present subjunctive.

No + [ reflexive pronoun] + [‘preocupar’ conjugated]

No se preocupen, para eso estamos.
Don’t worry, that’s what we’re here for.

No se preocupe, no me molesta ir parado.
Don’t worry, I don’t mind standing.

No te preocupes, si necesitas otra cosa me dices.
Don’t worry, if you need something else, tell me.

6. Tranquilo – No worries

In addition to the last two phrases, ‘tranquilo’ is another reassuring word that lets people know  that there’s no problem

Since ‘tranquilo’ is an adjective, it has to match the gender of the person. So, depending on who you’re talking to, you’ll have to use the masculine ‘tranquilo’ or the feminine ‘tranquila’ (and its plural forms).

Tranquilo / Tranquila + [complement]

Tranquilo, yo pago la cuenta.
No worries, I’ll pay the bill.

Tranquilo, me encanta ayudar.
No worries, I love helping.

Tranquila, yo te llevo a la escuela.
No worries, I’ll take you to school.

Tranquilos, niños, vamos a encontrar a sus papás. 
No worries, kids, we’ll find your parents. 

Some variations of this expression are:

  • Tranquilo, Cirilo‘ is a slang and funny way to say ‘no worries’ in Mexican Spanish.
  • Calmado’ means ‘calm’ in standard Spanish.
  • Calmado, venado’ is another funny word play in Mexican Spanish that literally means ‘calm, deer’.

Take note: In every other context, tranquilo is a Spanish adjective to describe people who are ‘calm’ or ‘peaceful’.

El bebé está muy tranquilo.
The baby is very calm.

Hilda nunca se pelea con sus hermanos, es muy tranquila.
Hilda never fights with her brothers, she is very peaceful.

7. De nada – You’re welcome

As you may already know, ‘de nada’ is the standard way of saying ‘you’re welcome’ in Spanish, but since we use it as a response after we’ve helped someone, it’s also close in meaning to ‘no problem’. In a way, using this phrase is like saying ‘you don’t need to thank me, it’s nothing’.

De nada + [complement]

De nada, espero que te guste.
No problem, I hope you like it.

De nada, salúdame a tus papás.
No problem, say hello to your parents.

De nada, me da gusto que te haya sido útil.
You’re welcome. I’m glad it was useful.
