French term or phrase: a ladite juridiction
Birth Certificate. In a phrase, "en service a ladite juridiction".
clara
English translation:in the aforementioned jurisdiction
Explanation:
'Aforementioned' is more formal and would more likely appear on a certificate rather than 'before mentioned'.

Also note that it is 'jurisdiction' and in English we say IN a jurisdiction, not AT.

the above-mentioned jurisdiction OR authority


Explanation:
the 'en service' could be 'in application' (if referring to a procedure) or 'employed by' (if referring to a person).

To be more specific, you would need to give the whole sentence...

maybe you had better put "territorial jurisdiction"


Explanation:
The whole expression used in such cases seems to be "juridiction du poste", i.e., not so much a court jurisdiction as a specific civil registry.

disagree  Nikki Scott-Despaigne: From the overall context, the meaning of jurisdiction should be clearer. Jurisdiction means extent of application.

You have posted up quite a few questions here but you are not providing enough context. What you need to do is to provided the whole sentece at least, if not those which precede and follow, and if you're going the whole hog, why not the whole paragraph. The more context you give, the more useful the answers will be!
