Portuguese term or phrase:correu termos
Numas alegações de recurso:
"o processo de registo da marca esteve suspenso durante um ano e meio, enquanto correu termos o processo de declaração de caducidade"
Penso que as explicações que existem no Kudoz para "corre(r) termos" não se enquadram nesta frase. No meu entender, na frase acima "correu termos" ter dizer enquanto esteve a decorrer, mas não estou a conseguir fazer a transição para o inglês. Alguma ideia? Obrigado.
