    Default Enclosure

    Hi People,

    how would you translate the word "enclosure" into Spanish for Latin America?

    My client suggested "Estructura" and I used "carcasa" but something is wrong with both terms...

    Thank you

    I understood "enclosure" as something that comes within an envelope, like a letter, could you give further context?

    Default Context

    Hi Veronica,

    Yes, sorry about the lack of context. I was translating a brochure for an Apple system, a whole system for servers.
    In this case, "enclosure" refers to the outside metal box that covers all the equipment. Is the case of the PC.

    thank you

    Default Enclosure

    I would say la cubierta as it is the outside structure.

    yo diría:

    armazón o revestimiento externo o directamente
    caja protectora externa, o armazón externo que cubre .....
    (a veces se puede encontrar una mejor manera de definirlo parafraseando)

    "La caja" is the most simple but I like "La cáscara" for your application! But you may well be starting a new colloquialism!!!!
