|French term or phrase: contrôle (in context)|
|Hello, I'm proofing a framework agreement for the management of companies and buildings. One of the sections is entitled "contrôle par le Mandat" which the translator has translated as "Oversight by the Principal".|
Is this correct? The term contrôle is repeated throughout the text and is always translated as oversight. I don't want to unnecessarily correct work that otherwise seems extremely professional, but the word oversight has another meaning for me.
Your help is greatly appreciated.
