The preposition "mediante"
"Mediante" is a preposition that usually has the meaning of: "by means of" and  is used to indicate how something is accomplished.
"Mediante"  is fairly formal and  is used more often in writing than in everyday speech. 
Common phrases that are more commonly used in speech  instead of using "mediante"  are:
 "por medio de"    
"con la ayuda de"
These phrases always can be used instead of "mediante".
and in some sentences, "con"  also can substitute it.
Note how mediante can be translated to English in a variety of ways even though it always has the basic meaning of "by means of." 
This word offers an excellent example of the key principle of translation that you should always translate for context, rather than word by word.
