Explanation:
but you can't translate like this in my opionion...

by the way, the fact that the expression "effective time"'exists in English is not an argument for that choice of yours. The fact that you ask for an equivalent for a translation shows me what you don't know about it...political institution terms are not translated by "equivalents"..

25 years of translation goes behind that statement

and it\'s What is the equivalent and not \"Which is the equivalent\"..which is an adjective or a relative pronoun..
