Spanish to English: Clause in a contract Detailed field: Law: Contract(s)
Source text - Spanish Décima sexta - Cambio de denominación, representación o domicilio. Ambas partes convienen en que si durante la vigencia del presente instrumento «el contratante» por cualquier causa cambia de razón social o de representante legal, o domicilio, los efectos, derechos y obligaciones del presente contrato sustituirán en las condiciones ya establecidas, debiendo notificar de inmediato de tal situación a «la corporación», comprometiéndose a cubrir de forma inmediata los adeudos pendientes.

English to Spanish: Mortgage application Detailed field: Real Estate
Source text - English You have the right to a copy of the appraisal report to be obtained in connection with the loan for which you are applying, provided that you have paid for the appraisal. This notice is not a request for a copy of the appraisal report. If you want a copy of the appraisal, please submit a separate written request after a decision has been made on your loan request.
I (we) fully understand that the sole purpose of the appraisal is to assist XYZ Lending Services, Inc. in evaluating the property for lending purposes only. The appraisal was not and is not intended for the use of a loan applicant and should not be relied upon for such purpose, as neither the appraiser nor XYZ Lending Services warrants the value or the condition of the property for any other parties.
Translation - Spanish Usted tiene derecho a solicitar una copia del informe de tasación en relación con el préstamo que ha solicitado, siempre que haya pagado el importe de dicho informe. Este aviso no constituye una solicitud para obtener una copia de dicha valoración. Si desea solicitar una copia del informe de tasación, comuníquese por escrito después de que se haya tomado una decisión con respecto a su solicitud de préstamo.
Declaro (Declaramos) que hemos leído y entendido plenamente que la finalidad exclusiva de la tasación es facilitarle a XYZ Lending Services, Inc. la valoración del inmueble a efectos únicos de otorgar un préstamo. El informe de tasación no estaba (ni está) destinado para uso del solicitante de préstamo y no debe emplearse para dicho propósito, puesto que ni el tasador ni XYZ Lending Services garantizan a otros interesados el valor o la condición del inmueble.
English to Spanish: Guidelines for 501(c)(3) Public Charities Detailed field: Government / Politics
Source text - English 501(c)(3)s public charities (including public foundations) CAN lobby within the generous limits allowed by federal law. How much lobbying the organization can do depends on which of two sets of rules the organization chooses to fall under -- the “501(h) expenditure test” or the “insubstantial part test.” In issuing regulations on lobbying, the Internal Revenue Service stated that, under either test, public charities “may lobby freely” so long as lobbying is within specified limits.
Translation - Spanish Las organizaciones benéficas 501(c)(3) (entre ellas fundaciones públicas) PUEDEN realizar actividades de cabildeo con tal de que respeten los amplios límites que estipula la ley federal. La cantidad de cabildeo que pueda realizar una organización depende de su elección de una de dos reglas a las que haya decidido ampararse: la «prueba de gastos 501(h)» o «la prueba de la parte insustancial». En su normativa sobre cabildeo, el Servicio de Impuestos Internos (IRS) ha declarado que, conforme a cualquiera de estas pruebas, las organizaciones benéficas «pueden realizar cabildeo libremente» siempre y cuando dicha actividad respete los límites estipulados.
