|Spanish term or phrase: sentences starting with "Que.."|
|I find hundreds of sentences in Spanish that start with "Que..." and I don't know how to translate this into English.|
Ex: Que de acuerdo con la Alianza Centroamericana para el desarrollo sostenible:
Que en El Salvador el ente rector del Sistema Nacional de Gestión del Medio Ambiente es...
Also, what is 'ente rector'? Would that be GOVERNING BODY?
|That ... These aren't sentences, they are clauses|
and you have to read them with the rest of the contract that usually comes in capital letters to get the full sentence (legal context.)
"Let" in Biblical language (Que + subjunctive, as in "Que haya luz" = Let there be light). This also tends to carry over into legal language.

|Actually, after reviewing all the suggestions and looking at my document again (which was not legal) I decided that none of them worked for me. I simply eliminated the Que and made the sentences plain statements in English. But, I had to choose an answer and I definitely appreciate the input|

That in El Salvador...
That's the only way to translate it.
If we read: "Que en el Salvador el ente rector, etc,etc,", it means more or less this:
Me han dicho QUE en El Salvador...
He oído QUE en El Salvador...
Me he enterado QUE en El Salvador...
Tengo noticias de QUE en El Salvador...
When the sentence begins by the word QUE , the previous words are omitted, but understood.
Ente Rector means Government Body, that's correct. Rector comes from REGIR.
Hope this helps a bit.
