Portuguese term or phrase: "p/p" by signature line
Hello!
There is a symbol by the signature line for a document, whcih says "p/p"
I know it is related to having a legal representative sign for the person, but does anyone know exactly what it means, and how it can be translated into English?
Thank you!
Naomi
per procurationem
Explanation:
It's a Latin term and you can use either "pp" or "p.p." in English. You don't actually need to translate it. According to the Oxford, though, the literal translation of the Latin is "through the agency of".
Hope this helps.
