English term or phrase: "Hospitality"
This appears in a questionaire. The question was: "What is your organizarion's primary type of business?" And then it gives a list. "Hospitality" is one of the items in this list. (Other items were: Accounting, Business services, Retail, etc.). I think that "Hospitalidad" would be too literal. Any ideas? By the way it is for Latin America.

hospitalidad, atencion


Explanation:
Me parece que esta mal traducido. O por Hospitalidad quisieron referirse a negocios en el ramo de Hoteleria, restaurantes, confiterias, etc que "reciben" y atienden al cliente. Yo pondria algo relacionado con atencion al cliente, o con atenciones. Corporate hospitality es atencion a los invitados de la empresa.

I would suggest:


Explanation:
Atención al Público

or Relaciones Públicas but atención al público is more likely because it has to do much more with hospitality.

hospitalidad


Explanation:
Let's not re-invent the wheel. It IS hospitalidad (Simon and Schuster's International Dictionary, English/Spanish-Spanish-English). As a resident in Orlando, Florida, I can tell you that it is the most widely and acceptable translation used and the ones in this industry understand exactly what you would be refering to.

hosteleria


Explanation:
Creo que "hospitalidad" se entiende tambien, pero, al menos en Espana, se diria "hosteleria" (o "negocios de hosteleria").
Buena suerte.

Hotelería


Explanation:
Aunque en términos generales "hospitalidad" sí es el equivalente a "hospitality", en cuanto a la industria, ésa se le llama "hotelería" (que es lo mismo que "hostelería", pero por lo menos en México no se usa con la "s"). Es más, la carrera se le llama de distintas maneras; por ejemplo, la Univ. de las Américas de Puebla le llama Administración de Hoteles y Restaurants, pero también simplemente "hotelería".

Hostelería


Explanation:
Tengo seguridad de que el término no es hospitalidad, sino hostelería. Recientemente he recibido un listado de empleos para su traducción a otro idioma, para un website. El par inglés español para Hospitality se refería a Hostelería, y hacía luego subdivisiones que no podían ser de otro gremio.
El enlace que te doy es sobre alguien que se refiere al gremio en inglés, en un foro, y te servira de ayuda.

Atención social


Explanation:
En el Diccionario Internacional del Traductor de Marina Orellana aparece una entrada para el término "hospitality" que se refiere al área de "atención social". Me parece que va de acuerdo con el contexto.

Hospitalidad, Hotelera


Explanation:
I have seen both of these terms used for the hospitality services industry in Mexico. The first one would be my first choice as it is understood by those in the business to include all of the services of a hotel rather than just renting out rooms. Hope this helps with all the other answers you got!
