Spanish term or phrase:delegaciones del distrito federal
Bien, el Distrito Federal es la Ciudad de Mexico, capital de Mexico, esta dividida en delegaciones, como traduzco delegaciones al ingles? Boroughs??
Explanation: There is a rather lengthy discussion on this point in http://forum.wordreference.com/showthread.php?t=519802 where the terms locality or municipal subdivision was proposed. There is no exact English equivalent, and the term may as well be retained unstranslated.
