Bus/Financial
Norwegian term or phrase: Presisering
Hi all. Doing a legal document (overnight): two queries. At the heading the term "v/" is used twixt two names (not these two I've included). Eg "Ole Nordmann v/ Odd Knutsen. I think a simple "/" would suffice?
2nd query is "presisering". My feeling is "Precise definition".
Any help welcome

Explanation:
The "v" in "v/" is an abbreviation of the word "ved", which is a preposition with the basic meaning "at, by, near". In this case, however, the English equivalent would be "represented by", i.e. Ole Nordmann is represented by Odd Knutsen.
I have not seen "v/" used as an abbreviation of "versus" in Norwegian (which incidentally is my native tongue).

Explanation:
the 'presis' in presisering is not so much 'precise' as 'clear'
Thus 'clarification' is the right word

Norstedt 'precisering'= specification, definition, clarification
