English term or phrase: straight through rate
In a document for a Lain American Central Bank I find the term "straight through rate" and then aain, in a table with instructions to determine the cut-off times:

Straight Through

where "repair" refers to the instructions.

Although a translation into Spanish with reference to supporting documentation would be ideal, I would be equally happy to learn the exact meaning of these expressions.

straight-through rate

I found one site that uses the term. The way I see it, it is not so much a banking term as it is data-processing term. I believe it is a variation on through-put rate, which means the rate of processing speed.

Leticia, this is the only thing I could find:
straight line rate = tarifa constante; straight rate=tarifa constante...

the word straight through appears in a separate definition as follows:
through rate: tarifa hasta destino; joint through rate: tarifa conjunta desde punto de una linea a otro de otra

Tal vez el termino sea: "tarifa constante directa" o "tarifa constante conjunta"

Good luck! Hope it helps some.
Happy translating ;o)

straight through (de punta a punta)

I finally found out that "straight through" refers to the data processing. Int his case, it applies to international banking clearance. It is a fairly new expression and banks aare leaving it in English. It means that a processing is followed from one end to the other..
