La palabra del día: Traslado

Masculine noun. In Legal Spanish, we call traslado the notification of judicial writings that one of the parties must make to the other. For example, the traslado of the claim is the communication that the defendant receives of what is imputed or claimed, in order to be able to make exceptions if there were any. E.g.: Una vez sea realizada la evaluación, se debe dar traslado por un día para presentar observaciones: Once the assessment is carried out for one day it must be studied in order to make observations.
The lexical locution is dar traslado or, if you are really pompous, conferir traslado. From the point of view of the party who is being notified, the lexical locution is recibir traslado. What is the main difference between the expressions notificar and dar traslado?: The party who recibe traslado has the right to make expceptions in a due term. Notificar is a more generic word that not necessarily implies the right to make exceptions or observations. We introduce the term in wich the other party has to make exceptions with the preposition por: Dar traslado por 10 días.
By the way, trasladar(se) also means to move a house, a firm, etc., and the noun is also el tralsado. dc
