    Default Translating "Best Practices" into Spanish

    Hi

    Can anyone help me translate the term "Best Practice" or "Best Practices" into Spanish?

    Is there a recognized Spanish term already in use that stands for this?

    Thanks

    Hi damiananda!
    Can you provide a little bit of context? Is it in the field of medicine? legal?

    "Best Practices" is used in all professional contexts. Military, Medicine, Business, Legal, etc.

    If there are ten ways to do something but one of them is the best one (better, faster, more elegant, more professional, effective, etc), this would be the best practice.

    Thanks.

    Hi!
    thanks for the explanation.. I meant a paragraph of your translation... i think that two good options could be "buenas costumbres" or "buenas/excelentes prácticas"

    In the industrial world the term 'mejores prácticas' is very common.

    Hi,

    I agree with hugocar. The correct translation is Mejores prácticas.
    I used to have to use this constantly when communicating to the Latin American internal audience of a US based company and they preferred to leave the phrase in English -- But unless you're told otherwise, in the marketing field I am pretty certain Mejores prácticas is correct.

    Bests!!!

    De hecho, 'mejores prácticas' es la respuesta correcta. En españa, se utiliza también a menudo "excelente/excelencia" ...

    Hi, although "mejores prácticas" does not sound so natural in Spanish, this is what I usually read.
