I know this means five years but I'm not sure if "pentad" is the correct English word

Five Year Period
Explanation:
Hi there ... it's called Five Year Period in English, and actually it's spelled "quinquenio," not "quiquenio" -- the latter is a typo. I take it you are translating a Guatemalan legal document? This phrase appears quite often on Guatemalan legal docs, but I have yet to see that same phrase on legal docs from other Latin American countries. Cheers, Mary
