Abstract

This paper analyses the variation in terminology for the concepts of company law from a descriptive and comparative perspective, taking as a reference the legal terms used in Spain, Mexico and Peru, in the case of Spanish, and England and Wales and the United States for English. The aim is to highlight the diatopic varieties in this area, which are related to the conceptual and terminological diversity that arises from the different legal systems. The approach is pragmatic so we have selected the most common documents in this field to make specific translation proposals.
