Ok let me give you the right answer honey..para could mean "for" or "so" for example "para que?" is "for what" and "para que yo" is "so that I"..it depends how you us it
It is usually translated as "for".
It depends on how you use it, just like 3lena said. But ive also heard some people use para as the english word to? Has anyone else ever heard it used in this way?
Por and para are Spanish words which both translate as 'for', but using them correctly is *very* tricky!
