English term or phrase: Authority
Can Authority and Authority principle in a political document be translated as
Autoritäten oder Autoritätsprinzipien?
Jean
Behörde
Explanation:
Again, a question of context. Authority is often best translated with Behörde, in relation with administration. In a more political context, it should be Autorität, and the plural may be used in the appropriate context, which I can tell from this.

Good luck -
