Margarita: I'm giving you the points, but I thought that "quality assurance" as Deborah suggests was a good choice for translating cuidado. But when I searched colophons for it, it didn't come up. Thanks again for your help! 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
Explanation: Es la frase hecha que suele usarse. Supervised abarca cuidado y supervisión. (Revisé algunos libros a la mano; en inglés, muchas veces se sintetiza o se omite)

Notes to answerer
Asker: Tienes toda la razón. Busco por todos lados (hay muchos ejemplos por via de Goggle) y algo semejante a "cuidado" simplemente no aparece. ¡Un abrazo!
La composición ... > Typeset, quality-assured and printed under the supervision of ...
Explanation: I would change the phrase around so that it flows better, and to eliminate unnecessary words. I have put "typeset" because earlier in the paragraph (in your earlier question) comes "composición tipográfica" i.e. typesetting.
Asker: Deborah: I thought your answer was excellent and realized that QA is certainly a great choice for cuidado, but I still couldn't find it in any colophons, so I'm going to give Marga Esther the points--but I wish I could split them! Thanks for your help.
