Spanish term or phrase: Ex Consejero Legalizador, Colegio de Escribanos, Colegios Notariales
Ex Consejero Legalizador, Colegio de Escribanos and Colegios Notariales appear in an apostille after an Argentine birth registration. I've never seen the first term. I'd love to see how others render the escribanos (officers of the court/special notaries/court clerks?) association and would it be Notaries Associations? Thanks!

Explanation:
Ex[celentisimo] Consejero Legalizador = The Honorable Civil Registrar
Colegio de Escribanos = Judicial Assistants' Association
Colegios Notariales = Notarial Boards (or Associations of Notaries)

These suggestions are based in part on the usual sources (Cabanellas-Hoague, Robb, et al.) and in part on a desire to describe these people and organizations, which belong to a fundamentally different legal system (as opposed to Anglo-Saxon and English Common Law), in terms that an Anglo-American reading audience will understand.

Thanks, Heathcliff! I pored over my C-H and Robb references, but would have been hardpressed to come up with Hon. Civil Registrar. I ended up going with "notary public" for "escribano" as Robb offered the former up for the latter (specifically for Argentina). Thanks again!
