Explanation:
In this case, 'legacy' refers to systems older than the technology being used, so you can choose between: tradicionales, antiguos, clásicos... etc.

The key phrase in my choice of your answer over the others was "choose between", as the text repeats "legacy" in different contexts, all meaning generally the same (pre-existing software or hardware), so I varied my translation in each case. The English has too many market-speak "tics" such as "legacy", "mission-critical", "corporate", etc. which I've had to polish up in the Spanish.

Nevertheless, the kudoz should go to everyone who replied on this one!

aplicación de impresión paralela


Explanation:

Explanation:

Legacy application is an application in which the company already has invested considerable time and money. Examples: database managenent systems (DBMS´s)running on mainframes and minicomputers. That is why it is important for the new software products their ability to work with a company´s legacy applications or at least to be able to import data to them.

Legacy system is an is an euphemism for the big traditional mainframe systems (usualy IBM or the like)used by TCP/IP and UNIX computers. It is used instead of naming such a system ´a big old dinosaur´.

sistemas de mainframe/
sistemas paralelas

legacy application - aplicación paralela

Aplicación de impresión heredada


Explanation:
Es muy difícil que las empresas elaboren documentos de alto impacto usando una aplicación de impresión heredada o un sistema de facturación inflexible.

Acá van unos links que confirman su uso correcto:

Como veo que eres de España, acá van también otros links de sitios de España en donde se usa la misma terminología.
