|Spanish term or phrase: Sistemas Administrativos y Contables|
|Estoy traduciendo un analítico de una escuela secundaria de ARgentina y dentro de sus materias figura "Sistemas Administrativos y contables". Lo traduje como Accounting and Administrative Systems, pero no sé si es lo correcto. La traducción será presentada en U.K.|
|Accounting and Finance - Accounting and Administration (SEE MORE DETAILS IN EXPLANATION)|
Normally, the term “systems” in US and UK is used in connection with “Information Systems”.
The name “Administrative Systems” is old. It comes from the times of the NCR and Burroughs machines ( “mechanical accounting machines”), before the PCs and the new computing systems.
In UK, “Accounting” is frequently included in the courses named as: “Accounting and Finance”. This is a very common name.
But we need to know the items included in the Argentine program because in some cases, we can say: “Accounting and Business Administration”.
As I said before, I think the important point is: descriptive titles that include all the items studied despite that in UK the courses probably have different names. After that the authorities of the UK education will make the parallel between the Argentine programs and the UK programs.

"Systems" para mí me suena más como si estuviera describiendo la tecnología. Y "Business Administration" es muy común.
