English term or phrase: Stock Option (SO)
I have to translate "stock option" for the minutes of a company... I have looked all over to no avail... does anyone have a succinct translation for this... I know what they are (an option granted to an employee to purchase shares in the company he/she works for at a discounted price), but what would the translation be in Spanish? Is there a commonly accepted translation?

Thanks

Thank you to all that supplied answers. The "opción de compra de acciones" and its variants seem to be the common denominator. I was afraid that this was too literal, and preferred to check with the Proz! Spraggon was the first to supply the answer, so I believe KudoZ should go to him. Thanks Oscar!

Alex, lo que dices es 100% correcto y no creo que exista un término específico en español.

opción de compra de acciones


Explanation:
Hi Alex,

Although in Spain they have become popularly known of late as "stock options" (without translating the phrase into Spanish), due primarily to the Spanish telephone monopoly's arrogant decision to award its top executives with zillions in stock options without lowering their rates to the public or increasing dividends to lowly shareholders, the correct phrase is "opción/opciones de compra de acciones". I have been translating financial texts for over 16 years.

Opción sobre acciones

Así es como lo han traducido aquí, en Madrid, los diarios de información general sobre un reciente escándalo de la Telefónica para todo el país: opción sobre acciones, opciones sobre acciones. No siendo experto en economía, no puedo decir que sea lo más correcto lingüísticamente.
