Comparative law notes

"Resolver" means to terminate an agreement for breach of one of the parties. However, the general concept of "termination" shares the same purpose as "resolução", which is the act of ending a contract. Therefore, in most contexts, using "terminate" as a translation for "resolver" should be sufficient.
