Spanish term or phrase: Auxiliar de Contabilidad
I would translate this as Accounting Assistant, however, this person has a list of positions she held and underneath Auxiliar comes Asistente??? How do I differentiate (Auxiliar is also used by itself)
Auxiliar
Asistente
Cris
Accounting Aide
Explanation:
I believe this could be the best term to translate "auxiliar de contablidad", and that "aide" may be the best word to translate "auxiliar" in other contexts, i.e. where it is a matter of occupational rankings.

The following citation contains the set Accounting Manager/Assitant/Aide:-

Class Specifications -- Alphabetical List ... A. ACADEMIC PERSONNEL SPECIALIST; ACCOUNTANT; ACCOUNTING AIDE; ACCOUNTING ANALYST; ACCOUNTING ASSISTANT; ACCOUNTING MANAGER; ACCOUNTING TECHNICIAN; ADMINISTRATIVE AIDE; ...
http://www.laccd.edu/perscomm/alpha.htm)
The terms "Accounting Assistant" and "Accounting Aide" occur frequently in job-descriptions, as in the folllowing citations:-

Business Office ... edu. Fuchs, Irma, Accounting Assistant, () -, K-126, fuchsil@trade.laccd.edu. Neve, Richard, Accounting Aide, (213) 744-9054, K-126, *. Aguilar, ...

http://www.washingtontwp.org/finance/

A description of an Accounting Aide's duties and their rate of remuneration is contained in the following citations:-

http://www.elcaminocollege.org/human_resources/salaries/casu...

I cannot tell you what the relative ranks of “Accounting Assistant” and “Accounting Aide” are. However, I can say that “Accounting Aide” is one of the terms in a set including “Accounting Assistant”, “Accounting Manager” . And that the word “aide” occurs in the same way, i.e. as an occupational rank in the contexts such as administration, teaching, nursing, etc.

Finally and parenthetically, In another meaning “Accounting Aide” also appears as the word for a kind of software package for PCs, and in websites offering accounting/bookeeping information, as in the following:-

Accounting Aide - Easy to find Accounting Information Easy to find Accounting & Bookkeeping info, tips, courses, tutorials, books, tools, and resources. Search: ...
http://www.accountingaide.com/

I hope that doesn’t sound to complicated, and that at least it helps you home in on the correct term for your translation. Good luck.

Thank you so much. I think everyone had great ideas, and it was difficult to choose, but I think this is the clearest way to distinguish the two words.

Take care,

Explanation:
I got this idea from a list of possible translations for auxiliar administrativo (not that I've ever used it to translate that) and is obviously copied from somewhere, but I can't remember where.
