    Default Please Help!

    I found in a document that I'm translating the following phrases:
    "thereunto appertaining"
    "In witness whereof"

    The problem is that I can find a spanish equivalent.
    The phrases are in a diploma.
    Thank you so much

    Hi Jerry. "In witness whereof" is translated as "En fe de lo cual".
    Now "thereunto appertaining": means "que aparecen en (dicho documento o registro etc). I would need more context to know what document it refers to, since previous to this sentence they must have mentioned certain file, records or documentation ( thereunto appertaining = appearing unto that document, file, records etc)

    Hope this helps

    Hola Jerry! Soy traductora jurado y yo "in witness whereof" siempre lo traduzco por: en testimonio de lo cual.


    Espero que te ayude

    "En fe de lo cual".

    en testimonio de lo cual.
    I am not an expert at all on the field but I believe that both mean the same, at least in the legal field.
    According to RAE
    testimonio.
    (Del lat. testimonĭum).
    1. m. Atestación o aseveración de algo.
    2. m. Instrumento autorizado por escribano o notario, en que se da fe de un hecho, se traslada total o parcialmente un documento o se le resume por vía de relación.
    3. m. Prueba, justificación y comprobación de la certeza o verdad de algo.
    4. m. Impostura y falsa atribución de una culpa.
    5. m. Ecd. Cada uno de los textos manuscritos o impresos que constituyen la tradición textual de una obra.
    Realmente, el destino del mundo depende, en primer lugar, de los estadistas y, en segundo lugar, de los intérpretes.
