Spanish term or phrase:Primitiva
My inclination is to leave it as it is, perhaps adding Lottery, but thought I'd check to see what you all think...
I had previously asked this question under Sp>Sp, having not noticed that it was set there. Apologies. But the result so far has been very interesting and relevant historical information from Andy Wilkinson!
Explanation: The fraud sites do say that there is not such a thing as Loteria Primitiva, but in fact in Spain it is known both as Lotería Primitiva or Primitiva.
Agreed that depending on what document you are translating you would use Lotería Primitiva or Primitiva Lottery. Maybe the best thing is leaving it with the original name and add a translator´s note explaining what it means in the target language.
