Spanish term or phrase: Bolívar Soberano
Hi, I would like to know if there is an official translation of the new currency of Venezuela, the Bolívar Soberano. Would it be translated as Sovereign Bolivar? Is that correct or would it be better to keep the Spanish word?

Thanks!

I would keep it in Spanish, maybe in italics or with quotes.

Maybe with a parenthetical translation the first time it appears, like the one you suggest.

Good luck!
