    Default Contrato Llave en mano

    Nunca he escuchado esta expresión en inglés. Se trata de un contrato en el que el objeto es entregar una fábrica terminada completamente al cliente, por eso "llave en mano".
    Any ideas?

    Hi Sandra:

    I wonder if this is Spanish for the phrase "turn-key". We use that in situations where something is bought and is completely ready to go or to use without having to do anything further to the product or object. Such as buying a house or a car and all you have to do is "turn the key" y ya!

    so amazing! I had a translation a few days ago that included the term "turnkey" (I believe it was like that, one word)... it was about an equipment that the client made, and I understood it was like "ready to use"... anyway, I just found this post today! bad timing, but I did good!

    Default "Turnkey"

    Yes, Laura. This term appears all the time in translations, because manufacturers generally wish to emphasize the fact that the product is "ready to use" and using the product is very simple (= you do not need to be an engineer to understand the instructions).

    Hola!

    Y si se me permite abundar un poquito al respecto, el término se usa con frecuencia en comercio exterior: El vendedor se hace cargo de todos los gastos, trámites y riesgos desde el punto de origen hasta el arranque de los equipos en la fábrica del comprador, en el país de destino. Naturalmente, esto incluye todos los fletes, logística, impuestos, pólizas de seguro, maniobras e inclusive el montaje y las pruebas preliminares.
    Saludos
