Spanish term or phrase: propietarios
Hola! Estoy yendo del español de España a US English...y encuentro esta frase:

..."sistemas propietarios de análisis de datos"....

Alguien sabe si es un "calco" de la palabra PROPRIETARY del inglés o si realmente se dice así en España?

Gracias anticipadas, Au

Explanation:
Hola,

He trabajado 14 años en informática y he visto esta palabra cuando es un sistema creado por IBM o una empresa específica. Sí "proprietario" en este caso es un calco del inglés.

Saludos
