|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)|
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.

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:-

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.|
