I only have a few issues with Orrantia's translations. The main ones are:

1) I wouldn't use "caución" for "bond". I would use "fianza".

2) Also, I don't like "traslado forzoso" or "trasladar forzosamente" for "removal" or "remove". I prefer "repatriación" and "repatriar".

At least for today that is what I think. Anyway, hope this info helps someone. I have spent a long time thinking about it obviously.

My preferred term for "removal" and "remove" is "expulsión" and "expulsar".

This glossary is definitely the best that I have found. There are some other resources out there though, but they can be very contradictory as far as terminology. Good luck. Glad this was helpful for you.
