Dutch term or phrase: duodecies
Dit komt uit een Vlaamse overeenkomst waar verwezen wordt naar artikel 93 duodecies.

Explanation:
It means twelve (in Latin), but in this context it's used to signal an amendment inserting a new provision into an EU article, i.e.

"For amendments inserting a new provision, the Romance languages and Dutch use the following terms: bis, ter, quater, quinquies, sexies, septies, octies, nonies, decies, undecies, duodecies,..."

It's probably best left untranslated

...or even twelve times, sorry!

According to the same reference duodecies corresponds to \"k\" in the English system, so you could also write Article 93 (k)

Hope this helps!

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Chris Hopley: Good explanation. Possibly better to leave it in Latin for ease of reference. Perhaps depends on intended readership. E.g. an EU lawyer would no doubt already be familiar with the convention.
