Yesterday, I asked for help translating \"procuración de justicia\" which appeared in a sentence with \"administración de justicia\". I didn\'t feel that \"procurement of justice\" worked, but I got a response that cited numerous Internet links using the phrase. I accepted that answer. Today, with more time, I realized that(a) all those links were translation of Spanish-language sites; and (b) the term should be \"law enforcement.\" I corroborated this on a Mexican government web site. Now, however, the term is in the glossary. What do I do? Is there any way I can fix this in the general glossary?

Don't worry, Patricia May 7, 2003

Just give the link and one of those who can (mods or people with enough KudoZ) will correct the glossary.

Thanks.

Link to KudoZ entry needing correction May 7, 2003

Thank you, Claudia! Here is the link for anyone who can help: http://www.proz.com/kudoz/426546



The correct translation is \"law enforcement\" and a reference would be http://wwwenglish.pgr.gob.mx/home.htm (no period between the www and english)--on the page:

Law Enforcement Links



Again, much thanks!

Hola Patricia,



En realidad siempre tuviste ese tiempo. Es común ver a colegas que se apuran a asignar los puntos de una consulta, a veces sobre la primera respuesta que reciben. En general es buena idea tomarse un tiempito para hacerlo, de modo de poder recibir más opiniones y a veces algún interesante intercambio de opiniones.



Saludos,

Enrique
