Hi, everyone, I'm back again.

I'm trying to translate a University Report fromthe Vale do Rio Doce U, into English. Near the end of said report there is a section called - Atividades Complementares (Complementary/Extra-Curricular? Activities)Then there are sub-headings -Realizadas - Aproveitadas - Then come details of a special course that apparently was taken. My problem is to understand exactly what the difference here is between 'realizadas' and 'aproveitadas' since to me they don't appear to be very different. Your helping hands as always would be most welcome!:)

    Hi, everyone, I'm back again.

    I'm trying to translate a University Report from the Vale do Rio Doce U, into English. Near the end of said report there is a section called - Atividades Complementares (Complementary/Extra-Curricular Activities :tick:)


    Then there are sub-headings -Realizadas - Aproveitadas - Then come details of a special course that apparently was taken.

    Realizadas são as diferentes atividades que a pessoa fez.
    Aproveitadas são as que - entre as que a pessoa realizou - foram aproveitadas para o outro curso que a pessoa estaria ou queria fazer. Digamos que entre as atividades realizadas havia um estágio de 3 meses em XXX, o outro curso/ atividade que a pessoa queria constava a necessidade desse estágio XXX, como a pessoa já o tinha feito, foi aproveitado e ela não mais terá que fazê-lo num curso/atividade diferente.
    Espero ter conseguido me explicar.

    I am not sure about what would be the best translation for "aproveitado" or whether it would make sense in English at all. Maybe "used" or "utilized" but definitely not "employed"
    Aproveitadas = Employed :cross:
    This term is mostly used in
    • The employer-employee relation: Joe is/was employed by <person/business>
    • A direct utility sense: <thing> is employed in/for <purpose>
    The sense brough up in this thread is closer to that of ascribing value rather than utility or employment.
