Is that a fanmade version?

Apparently not. That version is released in Space Quest collection (spanish). I'm not sure.

After looking around, there was no official Spanish version of the game. This is a fan made translation (also apparent from the size of resource.001: it's 1514692, which combined with the rest of the game data files exceeds the space of a 1.44" floppy disk).

This Spanish fan translation was made in March 2002 by a user named SkaZZ. The problem is that this translation includes the full game. The translator acknowledges that he doesn't condone piracy, yet he chooses to distribute the whole game.

Unless this stance is changed, we cannot accept this translation, as it's not a patch of the original game files, but all of the game files with modified texts, which constitutes piracy.

Thus this version is rejected as we do not condone piracy in any way
