Untuk jumlah yang nominal, kata sifat yang cukup lazim digunakan adalah sekadarnya. Makna ini belum tercatat di KBBI, namun kerap digunakan, bahkan sampai masuk ke dalam putusan pengadilan (liihat surjaya ke-1).

tak berarti

In this context, "nominal" means very small, but implied in this word is the sense that "it exists, it is there, but too small to talk about." In other words, it's there, but it's not significant. Therefore, "tak berarti" is a perfect translation for the word in Indonesian.
