Bus/Financial - Law: Contract(s)
English term or phrase: precident
Is it a typo, or a new word? I meet it in the text many times, as for instance:
The Russian copy is for information only, and the English version takes precident.
Thank you in advance.

Chambers 21st Century Dictionary defines precedence as "priority".
"Precident" is probably a mis-spelling of precedent, defined as "basis for a decision".
