advancements (in AE/BE/Irish law of equity & trusts)
Explanation: Post-grading as not a fast enough answer.
I'm afraid Le Docte's/Eurodicautom's entry of 'preference or pereferential legacy' doesn't exist in any Eng-speaking legal system known to me.
There are preference co. shares. Legacies are bequests of money and chatttels only, but Vermächtnisse could include land = devises. So gifts would be better. That's why many Eng.-lang Wills start off 'I do hereby devise & bequeath..' to catch both.
Advancements as in the other answer: all kinds of property advanced lifetime.
