Portuguese term or phrase: regularização
Quando executado com equipamentos mecânicos o acerto do fundo da cava deve ser manual, obedecendo aos níveis de tolerância de regularização de fundo de cava ou vala indicado no projeto.

I know that it means to level (to make flat)...but when we say leveling it give the ideia to level to a certain elevation...but still not sure...the translation of leveling would be nivelamento and not regularização.

I'm kind of lost here...if someone could me?
