sociedades


Explanation:
General partnership es una sociedad comanditada.
Limited partnership es una sociedad en comandita simple.
Simple partnerships son sociedades colectivas.
Partnership a secas podría traducirse sólo como sociedad, sin mayor aclaración, según sea el contexto.
UPA: Uniform Partnership Act es Ley Uniforme de Sociedades Colectivas.
ESpero que te sirva, las traducciones están sacadas del estudio del derecho comparado.
