single step transformer?


Explanation:
I did not find transformador de relación única in Yahoo, so I am guessing. But I believe it refers to transformers that only transform frome one voltage to another (i.e. 220 V to 12 V, 380 to 330, or 13.2 V to 220 V, by way of example).
The references I am going to give might be tricky, because they are based on my assumption, and if my assumption is wrong, the references will be wrong also. Peer opinions, please.

Single step could be step up or step down, but I must repeat I am just guessing.

Sorry, there was a typo: 380 to 220 V.

single-ratio transformer


Explanation:
I believe "ratio" refers to the current ratio bw primary & secondary windings; in charts on GE's website they use the terms single-ratio and dual-ratio transformers, whose ratios can be, e.g., 200:5 or 200/400:5, respectively

fixed-ratio transformer


Explanation:
The main characteristic of a transformer is its turn-ratio, meaning the ratio between the amount of wire turns in the primary and secondary coils.
For most transformers this is a fixed number, since they are constructed turning wire around an iron sreucture and remain that way for all of their useful life, They are called fixed-ratio transformers.
A minority of transformers have built-in devices to modify one or both coils in order to cnange their ratio. Typical are transformers used to correct a primary voltage different fron its nominal value (usually lower). They are called variable-ratio transformers.
