English term or phrase: compounding
Hi all

I always thought that 'compounding' meant "con agravio" o "con agravante". Now, however, I am confronted with this new use of the term (new to me at least!) and I am struggling to translate it. HELP!!

The text I am translating has to do with exports controls. The section I am working on is entitled "Compound penalties". The title is followed by the this text:

"Compounding is currently only applicable in the U.K. It as a means by which Customs can offer the exporter the chance to settle a case without being referred to the Crown Prosecution Services, thus saving the taxpayer and company time and legal fees."

And then we have a list of examples which simply reflect the definition mentioned above.

Does anybody know what term can be used in Spanish to translate "compound" / "compounding" in this context.

Many thanks

cumulativo


Explanation:
Yo diría algo como cálculo cumulativo de sanciones.
En tu caso, el exportador solicita que le acumulen las sanciones impuestas a los fines de realizar un pago único por todas las sanciones en las que incurrió y así evitar que el caso se tramite o ventile en un tribunal ahorrándole tiempo y dinero en gastos legales inherentes al eventual juicio.

Compounding:

v. combinar, sintetizar; calcular cumulativamente; complicar, componer, hacer compuesto.

Good luck!

Todo parece indicar que si es el significado en tu contexto

"Compounder= el que participa de una transacción compromiso
Compound= transar- llegar a un compromiso
Compounding= acto de transar o llegar a un compromiso"
