French term or phrase: Le préjudice moral cause à cette dernière
ENG: "The non-material damage caused to the latter;"

Is "non-material damage" correct translation or should it be changed to "non-pecuniary damage"?

moral, reputational, emotional and psychological harm
Explanation:
Harraps "Dictionnaire juridique" translates it as "non-pecuniary damage". However, as shown by the reference below, that isn't quite right, because it is damage/harm that isn't pecuniary, material or physical. It covers damage to reputation, emotional suffering, shame, loss of quality of life ... and includes that suffered by third parties who are "victimes par ricochet".

It seems that this is translated as moral damage.

Journal Article
Moral Damage in Germany
P. R. Handford
The International and Comparative Law Quarterly
Vol. 27, No. 4 (Oct., 1978), pp. 849-875
‘One of the most interesting contrasts between the common law and the civil law is to be found in their attitudes to the recovery of damages for injured feelings and mental distress. In the common law, there has always been a marked reluctance to allow any such claim – an attitude summed up a century ago by Lord Wensleydale in Lynch v. Knight:
“Mental pain and anxiety the law cannot value, and does not pretend to address, when the unlawful act complained of causes that alone”’

I think that I prefer my longer version, as originally posted, to "moral damage". The problem with translating it as "moral damage" is that that makes it look as though there is some direct equivalent in English or US law, and I don't think there is.

Reference: Préjudice moral

Reference information:
Au sens strict, le préjudice moral « pur » correspond à l’atteinte aux sentiments de la victime, à l’instar de celle qu’elle peut éprouver dans son honneur, dans sa réputation ou dans son affection. Une telle atteinte se distingue alors à la fois des préjudices matériels « purs », tels que des atteintes aux biens immédiatement susceptibles d’évaluation pécuniaire, et des préjudices corporels, qui englobent quant à eux toutes les conséquences d’une lésion du corps humain, qu’elles soient d’ordre patrimonial ou non patrimonial.
Au sens large, le préjudice moral regroupe l’ensemble des atteintes qui n’affectent pas directement un patrimoine. Soit, outre les préjudices moraux « purs », les effets extrapatrimoniaux d’un dommage corporel, à l’exemple du « prix de la douleur » ou pretium doloris.
Cette conception, qui conduit à une assimilation des préjudices moraux aux préjudices extrapatrimoniaux, apparaît préférable, compte tenu de l’unité de leur nature.
