Buenos días:

Para la traducción de institución penitenciaria o centro penitenciario encuentro distintas posibilidades en inglés. He encontrado algunas páginas que optan por "penitentiary institution", pero no sé si esta es una solución que quede natural. ¿Alguna otra sugerencia o es esta una opción válida?

Gracias de antemano.

Saludos.
