línea analógica de oficina central y pbx


Explanation:
Hi Sandra!
EurodicAutom gives "pbx" as "centralita privada" and also "analog line" as: "línea analógica" (versus digital].
See:
http://eurodic.ip.lu:8086//cgi-bin/edicbin/expert.pl

I discovered that "c/o" = "central office", or "oficina central".

See:
http://www.networkcomputing.com/616/616rev4.html

Hope my suggestion helps:-)

agree  CCW: excepto por lo de CTP; PBX es un término aceptado en todas partes
3 hrs
  -> sí, pero también existe el acrónimo en español.

disagree  AMIN: "CTP" is too local..."PBX" is worldwide!!
15 hrs
  -> en eso consiste la TRADUCCIÓN, en acercar un texto a una cultura. El acrónimo no me lo he inventado yo, es de MORENO, A.

agree  Lorenzo Elizalde: sí señor, ya está bien de acrónimos y siglas foráneas. Bien defendido, Ignacio
