Spanish term or phrase:a conveniencia
¿Hay alguna traducción para esta expresión?
Se hicieron tales y tales cambios a la ley "... para permitirle eludir, **a conveniencia**, la obligación de realizar los respectivos aportes."
cecourtright, just for your info, this is a new subject. I received this paper for urgent translation and the context is plain economics. I will continue with the labour "affairs" later. However, your suggestion still applies

Explanation: I think that, in this occasion, "conveniencia" translates as "for his/her own benefit", since what the sentence is saying is that a number of laws were altered for the benefit of this person's own agenda.
