I've seen many movies in both languages and I've noticed this pattern:
1) In English-language movies:
-Famous supporting actors are listed at the end with the words "With" and "And".
-Composers are listed as "Music by".
-Cinematographers are listed as "Director of photography".
-The last credits are "Written by" and "Directed by".
-Unit production managers are never listed during the opening credits.
-People who work in visual effects and special efects are listed separately. Naturally, since they're different things.
2) In Spanish-language movies:
-Famous supporting actors are listed at the end with phrases like "
Con la colaboraciÃ³n especial de
" ("With the special collaboration by").
-Composers are listed as "
" ("Music") or "
" ("Original music").
-Cinematographers are listed as "
-The last credits are "
" ("Screenplay") and "
-Except for movies where all the credits are shown at the end, unit production managers are always listed during the opening credits.
-People who work in visual effects and special efects are listed together under "
" ("Special effects"), as if they were the same thing.
Of course that there are exceptions. There also plenty of Spanish-language movie credits that are purposely like the English-language ones.
Is there a reason in particular?
