    Default How to translate "Poison Pill"?

    Here is the definition of a Poison Pill:

    I was guessing it would be "Pildora venenosa" in Spanish....What do you think?

    Jejejeje. Sí, bueno, tanto las "crazy pills" como las "poison pills" hacen referencia a situaciones violentas, hostiles, forzadas. De ahí la asociación, jejejeje.

    Veo la utilización del término "veneno", así de fuerte, sin rodeos, para la traducción en textos especializados. Sí, estoy de acuerdo.

    Encontré "Pildora del suicidio" y "Pildora envenenada" también, pero prefiero "Pildora venenosa"

    Entiendo que se debe usar por transferencia, pero me suena super forzado. ¿No hay otra manera de decirlo? ¿Tal vez con otras palabras, aunque no sea tan conciso?
