Spanish term or phrase: de forma linea e indirecta
La propriedad industrial se valora por su coste de acquisicion y se amortiza de forma lineal e indirecta en los plazos establecidos en los diferentes contratos que varian desde 8 a 40 anos.

I'm confused with the indirecta part. Only heard of straight line depreciation, not indirect straight line. Is it possible to totally ignore indirecta in this case?

Explanation:
A suggestion.
I understand your doubt because something linear is, obvously, something direct, straight. But you should be faithful to the text in your translation. In wich case any of these translations can be used.
