Abstract: The goal is to present an update of the “international importance of language index” calculated and first proposed by Marqués de Tamarón, and applied later by Jaime Otero. This update is done first by bestowing special attention upon Spanish, and second, by applying a methodology equivalent to the one used 20 years ago by the aforementioned authors. In this way, it will be possible to appreciate how Spanish and other languages have evolved over the past two decades.
