Spanish term or phrase: entre otros (in this paragraph)
Hello everyone,

I'm not really sure what "entre otros" is referring to in this paragraph, which has to do with the split-up of a company and the transfer of its shareholding in another company to a third company.

EMPRESA A adquirió una participación minoritaria del 10% en EMPRESA B por un importe de XXX euros. La participación de EMPRESA A en el capital social de EMPRESA B es actualmente titularidad de EMPRESA C en virtud de la escisión total de aquella por la que transmitió por sucesión universal, ***entre otros***, a favor de EMPRESA C, la titularidad de las acciones de EMPRESA B.

So what I understand is that COMPANY A acquired a 10% minority shareholding in COMPANY B for the amount of EUR XXX. The interest in COMPANY B’s share capital held by COMPANY A is now held by COMPANY C as a result of the split-up of COMPANY A, pursuant to which it transferred ownership of the shareholding in COMPANY B to COMPANY C by universal succession.

But can anyone clarify what "entre otros" is referring to? I'm not sure if it's simply there were other assets transferred, in addition to the shareholding in COMPANY B. And if so, were these transferred to COMPANY C, or to other companies?

Notes to answerer
Asker: Thank you, but the question is more about what exactly "entre otros" is referring to here, not just how to express it in English... I'm not sure if it is referring to the fact that other assets were transferred to the same company, or that other assets were transferred to other companies, or something else...

  -> Well it's very frequently used that way in EN language legalese/officialspeak

agree  Patricia Tregoning: I agree with Chris. inter alia is the expression usually used in this context. Re. meaning I have posted note to Allison in discussion. Kindest regards

agree  Meridy Lippoldt: Fyi see "a dictionary of modern legal usage" by Bryan Garner who states that inter alia or among others is used of things. Inter Alios is used of persons. Inter alia is much more common than inter alios.

among others / among other parties

My understanding is that it refers to "others", i.e., other companies or persons, not "other things". It seems the most logical explanation to me given that Company A was split up, presumably into two or more other companies, and so ownership was transferred to, among others, Company C.

To be clear, what I believe it means is that "otros" means other persons to whom the ownership was transferred; not "the ownership, among other things".

agree  Richard Cadena: I usually go with "among other things".

  -> Thank you, Richard. My point is that it doesn't mean "things" here, it means "people".

agree  Robin Levey: Correct - in context and also in 'plain English'. Although the same interpretation would be properly conveyed by AT's "inter alia", provided the TT sentence is appropriately structured.
38 mins
  -> Thank you, Robin. I do think it's difficult to tell exactly, but in my interpretation it would need to be "inter alios".
