What Is Vesting?

Vesting is a legal term that means to give or earn a right to a present or future payment, asset, or benefit. It is most commonly used in reference to retirement plan benefits when an employee accrues nonforfeitable rights over employer-provided stock incentives or employer contributions made to the employee's qualified retirement plan account or pension plan. It also is commonly used in inheritance law and real estate.

neutral  Eliza Hall: Vesting is an acquisition of rights, but both Vesting and Awards are capitalized -- so they're contractually defined terms and we need more context.

disagree  Germaine: On parle de l'acquisition des droits relatifs à des attributions d'options. Il n'y a pas là de prix ou de récompense.// Vous êtes sûr d'avoir bien lu la question?

  -> le prix ou la récompense.consiste en l'attribution d'actions (stock awards) ou d'options dans une socéeté capitaliste.

disagree  Daryo: "des prix/récompenses"? I very much doubt that the "Awards" in this ST are of the kind you get at a nice ceremony.

Reference: Capitalization = defined terms, so we need context

Reference information:
We can't translate this accurately without knowing what the contractual definitions of Vesting and Awards are.

"Contracts can use words from the English language in specific, defined ways that are different from normal meaning. Any time you see a capitalized word in a contract, it indicates that for the purposes of the contract, that capitalized term has a specific definition. You can find that definition where the capitalized term first appears in the contract...

Anytime you see that capitalized term elsewhere in the contract, it means the specific definition given to it in that contract, and not its generic meaning in normal parlance. If you see the same word in lower case, it has the normal dictionary meaning and not the defined capitalized meaning."

agree  Daryo: the concept of "context" seems to be one hard to drill into some minds ... A Martian would be tempted to believe that "context" is some kind of passing fashion fad that some translators are curiously still fond of ...
