agree  Hermeneutica: It's Section or Paragraph 2 [bis in Latin, 3 is tris, 4 is quater etc.] of this Article

neutral  Robert Tucker (X): If it were house numbering it might well translate as 415a, so unless you are going to call 415 415a, not too sure 415b is too good an idea. Version 1, version 2???

agree  Valentina Pecchiar: IMHO Bis is to be left but it indicates an addendum, a "second art. 415" inserted between 415 and 416 and closely related to 415 in content. A second addendum would be "ter" ("third time"), not tris ("three of the kind" I think it's the translation)

disagree  diego luciano (X): bis don't have any traslation it's a latin word and you have to use the same word exctly "BIS" (i.e. art. XXX - bis ).

agree  bentom: I agree with Valentina. As anyone following the reference will generally have to read in the source language, probably best to leave it as it is labelled in the relevant code.
