    Hi again everyone

    I'm translating an article about American foreign policy which includes the phrase:

    Tenemos que volver al concepto de construir naciones”, dice. “Nadie quiere usar semejante término, porque está prohibido. Pero ese es el asunto”.

    As far as I understand it:

    "No-one wants to use such an end, because it is forbidden."

    But I'm not sure about the use of 'término' here. . .Please help!

    Does it not refer to the term, or the word, used?

    Do you mean what término refers to? If so, then no it doesn't seem to!

    It refers to the terms used: "construir naciones" or another said before.

    I think I understand. . .so could it be translated as

    'No-one wants to use such terms, because they are forbidden'
