Spanish term or phrase: Locación de obra
Explico lo siguiente: todos mis diccionarios proponen cosas relativas a building o construction, pero.... del contexto (y me apareció otras veces con otro significado) entiendo que es una especie de "assignment" a una determinada persona o compañía. Can anybody help me? Thanks in advance!

WORK SITE


Explanation:
If they are refering to the place where the job is to be done such as a factory, industrial facillity or the like, use WORK SITE; if you are sure they are talking about an assignment, let's say for an in-house translator, then use WORK LOCATION. Hope this helps. Good luck!

Job site or Play location.


Explanation:
Una Obra como lo mencionaste, puede ser el lugar donde se lleva a cabo una construccion. En otras ocaciones, obras, tambien son referidas a "obras de Teatro" u "obras Musicales". Otra traduccion podria ser. "Obra de Arte". No puedo pensar en ninguna traduccion literal para la palabra Obra.

Espero te ayude.

lease


Explanation:
Locación can also mean lease or sale (of services, e.g.) or even of real estate (maybe from the French "location" which means the same thing.)

LEASING

. Concepto. - El leasing es un contrato concebido para facilitar la adquisición de bienes de larga duración y alto precio. Tuvo su origen en los Estados Unidos al comienzo de la década del 50 y se reveló útil para impulsar la comercialización de dichos bienes.

Combina la locación (to lease en inglés significa alquilar) y la compraventa. El dador de la cosa la entrega al tomador, quien paga un alquiler o canon calculado de tal modo que al término del tiempo estipulado en el contrato, se haya cubierto la totalidad del precio de la cosa, con sus intereses; en ese momento la cosa pasa a pertenecer en propiedad al tomador; y aun antes de vencerse el término, el tomador puede adquirirla pagando el saldo debido.


Hope that helps!
