Spanish term or phrase: Prof. Dr. Ing. Sánchez Lara
This is a title of a university professor or something similar. I suppose Ing refers to Engineering
keith
English translation:Professor
Explanation:
Professor Sánchez Lara (PhD Eng.)

would be the most concise. Engineering could be used if space allows.

I am pretty sure that Doctorates in Engineering do exist! If Lara is a first name and not a second surname I would even be tempted to turn it around.

Explanation:
In English, you can use Prof.such and such, Ph.D.Eng. (or whatever is the abbreviation for Engineering, so as not to confuse it with the abbreviation for English). The Term Ing. has no equivalent meaning in English, except in Canada, for example, that you can use the P.Eng, designation for Professional Engineer(i.e. Prof. such and such, P.Eng.) which is the equivalent of a higher level certification as an engineer by whatever institution is offering the official certification.

Professor Ph. D. Engineer Sánchez Lara


Explanation:
That would be the complete translation. Prof. means he is a school/college/school teacher, Dr. as a post-graduate doctorate, and Ing. for Engineer in some field (ie. Ing. Sist. Comp. - Computer Science Engineer).


Good Luck
