Publishing in Different Languages

After publishing my last book in English, both in electronic format and print format, I am finishing up with the Spanish translation. If the book is exactly the same, but in a different language, does it use the same ISBN number, or does it get a different one automatically? Im concerned more about the paperback version than the electronic version. Thanks!

You would need a different ISBN for the paperback, since it's a different edition. For e-books, an ISBN is completely unnecessary (except that some retailers, like Apple, require them).
