Why did you use pseudolocalization instead of getting the software tested by a Spanish speaker?
Amir E. Aharoni

We absolutely had the software tested by native speakers in each language once we had translations! We had internal and external in-language QA, as well as beta testers. We got feedback on functionality, layout, and the translations themselves.

Pseudolocalization was a quick way for developers to be able to test before translations were done, just to make sure that all the strings were wrapped, they fit on the screen, and that the locale setting was properly applied to them.
