To me in English "repudiation" of a contract would be a breach of a contract already signed by rejecting it unreasonably, whereas a contract may be legitimately "terminated" (or various other synonyms) for cause.
Partial response to LisaMac's request above: The use of these terms seems to vary considerably from one country to another. From what I've seen in numerous contracts drafted in Chile:
- 'terminación' ('el término') refers to the normal completion of a contract, for example when the designated duration has expired or the job is completed, and there is no dispute pending between the parties. - 'repudiacion' refers to the refusal to sign a contract (which therefore never takes effect). - 'resolución' refers to the premature end to a contract at the demand of one party, usually because the other party has breached the agreed terms. (Note that in Chile, 'cancelar' usually means 'to pay' and it is only rarely used in the sense of 'to cancel' or 'to annul'.) - 'resciliación' refers to the premature end to a contract by mutual agreement between the parties (for example, because there is no need to continue wasting time and money on a project that's producing no useful results).
Hi all - I´m a bit confused by the various uses of 'resolución'. I have also seen it to mean 'repudiation'. This paragraph comes under a list of provisions under the main heading 'Duración y resolución' which I took to mean 'Duration and Repudiation'. Apparently there´s a difference between 'termination' and 'repudiation' - the former being used once the contract has been agreed to, and the other before it has been signed (in this case). I´m not particularly knowledgeable in this area so it would be great if some of you experts could clarify its meaning here. Thanks!

the resolution will take effect
Explanation: It sounds like the resolucion may be a hearing, but if that is not the case:
" ... the resolution will take effect ... "

"Termination" or "cancellation" will work as well.

Thanks Henry - went with termination in the end but still a bit confused about the subtleties of the various terms!
