Spanish term or phrase: EL DOS AL MILLAR, de las Estimaciones de Trabajos Ejecutados....
How can I express this in either words or figures: I am assuming it means 0.002%, am I correct? "One Two Thousandth"??? Is that the same thing?

Thanks.

Many thanks for your help, it makes sense now! Two per mil is the most succinct way of putting it, along with the symbol in brackets to reinforce.
