|Arabic term or phrase: دفاتر الكوبيا|
|The following text is an article in a line-of-credit contract with an Egyptian bank:|
إن إيصالات البريد ودفاتر الكوبيا وصور المراسلات الموجودة بالبنك هي كافية لإثبات الإرسال للكشوفات المذكورة ومحتوياتها
In Spanish and Italian, "copia" means "copy," but I can't see how the meaning fits here.
Al-Mawrid lists قلم الكوبيا as "indelible pencil," which is used for marking ballots because its mark cannot be erased. Again, This does not seem to help in my context.
Is anybody familiar with Egyptian filing or office management practices, especially related to banking or legal documents?
