English translation:the first level subdivision # 32 of the United States Code (collection of all federal US laws)
Explanation:
Title 32 United States Code = the part of the United States Code related to the National Guard

HERE "title" is simply the first level of subdivision of the "United States Code" which is the collection of all US federal laws; no particular compelling reason to call it "title" - simply a naming convention for levels of subdivision.

Title 32 is the collection of all federal legislation related to the National Guard



The Code of Laws of the United States of America (variously abbreviated to Code of Laws of the United States, United States Code, U.S. Code, U.S.C., or USC) is the official compilation and codification of the general and permanent federal statutes of the United States. It contains 53 titles (Titles 1–54, excepting Title 53, it being reserved).[2][3] The main edition is published every six years by the Office of the Law Revision Counsel of the House of Representatives, and cumulative supplements are published annually.[4][5] The official version of those laws not codified in the United States Code can be found in United States Statutes at Large.

some names for subdivisions can be misleading, but "Title" is always used for higher levels - typically a whole Law could be divided in few "Titles", tens of "Sections/Headings" and hundreds of "Articles"

as in:

The "Section" division is the core organizational component of the Code, and the "Title" division is always the largest division of the Code. Which intermediate levels between Title and Section appear, if any, varies from Title to Title. For example, Title 38 (Veteran's Benefits) the order runs Title – Part – Chapter – Subchapter – Section.

  -> Thanks!

agree  Tina Vonhof: So it's comparable to a chapter.
6 hrs
  -> or a section, or a heading, or a even a "schedule" ... these naming convention are just that - "conventions" - you make them mean whatever your want inside / for the purpose of one specific document. Thanks!

disagree  GILOU: subdivision, c'est surtraduit ici
21 hrs
  -> after spending years surrounded by bureaucrats, you surely know better than me their ways of thinking ... or is it the opinion of your MT? Also, a small detail: Asker wanted was an explanation so how can an explanation be "overtranslated"???

disagree  DGParis: "Title" is a division, not a subdivision. I agree with Gilou. He didn't use "overtranslated" but "surtraduit", with the full spectrum of meanings the language of diplomacy may convey.
