The term "comrade" (and its equivalent in other languages) usually means "a fellow socialist" or "a fellow Communist".

Comrade means "friend", "colleague", or "ally." The term originally carried a strong military connotation, and referred to a roommate.

The original (archaic) meaning of the Russian version of this term (товарищ, tovarishch) meant something like "business companion", often "travel (or other adventure) mate", referring to the noun товар (tovar, i.e. 'merchandise').

After the Russian Revolution, the Russian word товарищ (tovarishch) was championed by the Bolsheviks. The use of "comrade" soon became widespread among Communists worldwide (much more so than among socialists who were not supporters of the Communist International).

During the Russian Civil War, the Tsarist White Russians used the word comrades (tovarishchi) as a derogatory term for their Bolshevik enemies, particularly those involved in the Red Army and the soviets. Western politicians sometimes mock left-wing opponents by calling them "comrade."

It acctualy originated in France during and after the French Revolution after feudal titles where abolished, camarade is what its called in French.
It was then taken and used by the early pre Marx French socialists long before the Bolshevik revolution.

I wonder if spanish say companero, or if they say camarada

In German if you say "Kameraden" it sounds fascist. We always say: "Genossen"

germans are evrywere, austrians are germans,
germanic ancestary is common in most of europe, britan is germanic, franc is MOSTLY germanic and germany is obiusly german and skandinavians are germanic.

it's hard to say there is a big diffrenc beetwen any of them since they are all from the same area.
