English to Chinese translations [PRO] Law/Patents - Law (general)
English term or phrase:detention, custody, imprisonment
In American legal system, being detained, taken into custody, and incarceration are different. Being stopped by a police for traffic violation could be temporary detention. Most of these terms are translated the same in Chinese. I wonder if any forensic linguist know the precise translations in Chinese. Thank you!
