    Default powerful language

    Hey, g'd day y'all

    I was wondering if some of you could give me a hand with the term powerful language that often appears in a text I am aiming to translate, which is about CLA (Critical Language Awareness). So far, I have lengua poderosa... What do y'all think?

    Lenguaje/idioma con poder/prestigio/influencia/fuerza o con sus respectivas formas adjetivales poderoso, prestigioso, influyente, fuerte.

    La combinación a elegir va en función al contexto específico.

    Cotty, thank u very very much; I really had not considered the term I've used so far is not very natural in Spanish; I will try some of your options and will measure which one conveys in the best form the meaning of the Source Text, being natural in Spanish, indeed.
