English term or phrase:Grandparent job vs parent job
Hola a todos, could somebody please advise if there are any standard terms for "grandparent" and "parent" when referring to jobs (as in projects)? The text I have simply says: "Enter the name of the grandparent job (project)". Then the same "...of the parent job". In the past I had used principal for parent but now that grandpa has shown up, I feel a little cornered. When providing suggestions, could you kindly advise supporting reference material, if available, as the client is very fussy. Many thanks.
Explanation: En este caso necesitas especificar la diferencia de sexos. Parent en inglés puede ser tanto la madre como el padre, así como en el caso de los abuelos.
En términos generales puedes hacer plural con los abuelos, pero si te dan sólo parent debes poner padre/madre, o quizás padre o madre.
