Spanish term or phrase:Oude
I'm tranlating a Certificate of Matriculation from Ecuador. It is signed by El Secretario and "El Director de Oude". I cannot figure out what "Oude" means. Never seen it before. Thanks for any help. Ida
Explanation: In Dutch "de oude" literally means "the old one" or "the old man".
But when you say " Meneer de Oude " or " Dr. de Oude" it is a last name i.e. " Mr de Oude" or " Dr. de Oude" respectively. So, possibly, el Director de Oude is simply the directors name.
