Western Union and Sister-Company Create Business Pact with Orlandi Valuta

WHETHER POLITICAL or BUSINESS, the word PACT/S absolutely does existing in English, although Metzger may not be aware of it.

disagree  Kim Metzger: You wouldn't find "pacts" mentioned in English agreements/contracts. Vertragsfreiheit http://europa.eu.int/eur-lex/lex/Notice.do?mode=dbl&lang=es&...
5 mins
  -> Just another proof of your continuous and mostly unjustified bugging. Ever heard e.g. of the Warsaw Pact? Or I get 460'000 hits for Political Pacts, not to speak of countless business pacts. See some examples above.

disagree  writeaway: look up Vertragsfreiheit and you'll see that you are not being bugged-the disagree is fully justified. your answer is wrong.

disagree  Kim Metzger: We don't use "to pact" in contract language. Maybe to "enter into agreements". / Native speakers of English don't use "pact" in commercial contracts. And certainly not the verbal form "to pact."
3 hrs
  -> Madam, I don't know what you mean by "we". Is it a class of your own? According to the foremost legal dictionary in Spain for legal English/Legal Spanish, "pact" can be used as an equivalent of agreement, covenant,treaty. AVH, page 290. BTW I'm a lawyer.

disagree  writeaway: In English, it's contractual liberty, liberty to contract or freedom of contract . no doubts about it. fwiw-'we' is what US speakers use for 'one'.
3 hrs
  -> Again, Madam, there's nothing worse than the deaf...In Spanish, "libertad para contratar" is the normal expression, but I'm helping somebody whose text speaks about "pacts", and I didn't write it..it's a badly conceived legal text, so I gave options. Bye.
