ET [trading on own account]

ЕТ е фирмено означение, наред с АД/ЕАД, ООД/ЕООД, ДОО и други, включително от миналото (ДСО, ДИП и пр., ad nauseam).
Тези означения неминуемо са конкретни за всяка една страна -- то ест, зад привидните сходства имат уникални смисли, заложени в законодателството.
Те следва да останат непроменени (макар и транслитерирани). Виж например как американското "Inc." остава непроменено в преводи на немски, турски или индонезийски, а [в добри преводи...] на руски става "Инк." Тоже с "Ltd.", "LLC", "Pty Ltd", "N/V", "Oy", "GmbH" et cetera, ad nauseam.
Да се преведе такова означение е връх на невежеството и криворазбраната циливицация, както и вражеско действие срещу свещената нам локализация! Естествено, при необходимост, означението следва да се обясни -- в скоби.
В даденият случай, на британски английски "ЕТ" се приближава най-много до "sole trader". ("Solo trader" е недочуто-недоразбрано.) Но и това е твърде предопределящо. Най-добре и най-неангажиращо е "trading on own account".
