Spanish term or phrase: después del termino de una iteración
Estas reuniones se realizan quincenalmente, después del término de una iteración y/o por evento

I'm not sure what an "iteración" is, or what the whole phrase is referring to.

Thank you!

subsequent to a repetition


Explanation:
Iteration means Repetition
but since there is practically no context, it´s difficult to be more precise.

besides, to judge from the links available, the term refers to the achievements of the single iterations (maybe in checking a product´s Performance or resistance, Responses etc. etc.) which are then discussed/planned in the socalled iterations meetings.

after an issue


Explanation:
= A rights issue.
"Rights issues may be particularly useful for closed-end companies, which cannot retain earnings, because they distribute essentially all of their realized income and capital gains each year; therefore, they raise additional capital through rights offerings.

The general meaning of "issue" could also apply. But am not sure, hence my low confidence level.

Explanation:
I would take the position that iteration is primarily for algorithms and in programming. I think "occurrence" more or less works here.

neutral  Cinnamon Nolan: OK, but what would be your translation of the entire thing ("después del término de una iteración y/o por evento.")? "Of an occurrence and/or event" doesn't do it for me. Without more context, the original (as Neil says) is (largely meaningless) jargon.
5 mins
  -> I'm suggesting "occurrence" for "iteration". Each iteration being an occurrence, and each occurrence being the iteration. after each time.

neutral  Pablo Julián Davis: Unlike 'occurrence/event'. 'iteration' quite specific in meaning, springs mainly from computer sci. and mathematics, now more broadly applies to performance of a single run-through or cycle of any operation or process. Under my answer I give reference.

This is fairly well-established terminology in English, documented in 30,500 Google hits.

Though any term can be misused, or used unnecessarily, 'iteration' is a perfectly good word with a meaning that 'occurrence' or 'event' doesn't quite capture. An 'iteration' is a single, complete performance of an operation or process; we can think of it as a single 'run-through' of something, or one complete cycle of an operation. By and large, 'occurrence' or 'event' primarily connote something that simply happens, whereas an 'iteration' is something that a human (or group of humans) intentionally performs.

iteration n.
1. The act or an instance of iterating; repetition.
2. Mathematics A computational procedure in which a cycle of operations is repeated, often to approximate the desired result more closely.
3. Computer Science
a. The process of repeating a set of instructions a specified number of times or until a specific result is achieved.
b. One cycle of a set of instructions to be repeated: After ten iterations, the program exited the loop.
