Law/Patents
Spanish term or phrase: eventualidad
Sé que el eventual de español es peligroso de ser confundido con el "eventual" del inglés, entonces, qué palabra sería la adecuada para esta frase:
Para ser presentada ante cualquier eventualidad como medio de prueba
aurora
in any event or occurrence (case, eventuality, contingency)
Explanation:
Collins Eng - Spa define "eventualidad" como "eventuality", "contingency"
En inglés, "eventuality" = a possible event, occurrence, or result; contingency.

eventuality


Explanation:
In this context I don't think you have to go looking for lots of more or less exact synonyms: this word fits the sentence perfectly, as in the phrase "to meet any eventuality"
