    Hola,
    Alguien podria decirme como se traduce Defensoria del Pueblo al ingles. Se que ombudsman es defensor del pueblo, ¿pero cual seria la palabra para referirse a la institucion?
    Gracias

    In Australia we say "Commonwealth Ombudsman" (National) or "(name of state) Ombudsman" (i.e. Western Australia Ombudsman") I guess another option could be "The office/department of the Ombudsman" but we don't say that.
