English translation:>> see below <<
Explanation:
rótula = ball joint or universal joint
ojo = eye, port, opening

Here's a literal rendering: "An oval ball-joint opening that serves as a coupling between the socket of the insulator and the shackle. While the shackle ensures a degree of freedom in the longitudinal direction, the oval ball-joint opening ensures a degree of freedom in the transverse direction."

and here's a slightly smoother version: "An oval ball-joint opening serves as a coupling between the insulator socket and the shackle. The shackle allows play in the lengthwise direction, while the oval ball-joint opening allows play in the crosswise direction."

The literal translation would be:" an oval eye socket", however,


Explanation:
I think the best term would be a sliding universal joint.

Front wheel drive cars have a similar joint called a "Constant Velocity joint (CV joint)"
