Spanish term or phrase: Estudios de Belleza y Estilismo A.C.
Name of a beauty school in Mexico. I'd like clarification about the abbreviation "AC." Also, I'm curious how my fellow translators would render the school name in order to make it sound natural in English.

Explanation:
Hola Paul,
Te ayudo con lo de "AC"; para la traducción del nombre de la escuela confío en la pericia de los colegas expertos en la materia para darte una versión mucho mejor de lo que yo pudiera ofrecerte. ¶:^)

"¿Qué es lo que significa "A.C."?

Las siglas "A.C." son la abreviación de Asociación Civil; es decir, una asociación sin fines lucrativos."

agree  Deborah Workman: Yes. And as for the translation, I wouldn't translate it if its the name of the school, but in anote you can put "school of cosmetology and hair styling" for which many Google hits can be found.
