Spanish to English translations [PRO] Law/Patents - Real Estate / cuartón
Spanish term or phrase:cuartón
I am translating a title deed of a property and have come across the term 'cuartón'. This appears to be a measurement of distance but online there is very little to go on. Does anyone know what this is in English?
It's not reasonable to expect anyone to be able to give you useful help on this question with almost no context. Where is it from (what country)? Is it contemporary, or old; & if old, how old? Can you give the sentence or phrase in which it occurs, plus a sentence or two or three on either side?
