Hi guys,

I wonder if you could help me with this one.

I am translating subtitles for an economic video.

They mention the word cyclicality in this context: 

There is no evidence that there’s been Dutch disease in these economies when we measure it carefully. There is evidence that there’s cyclicality that may be slowing growth but it’s not enough of a brake to stop the long run progress.

At the moment I have translated the word as 'ciclicidad'. I am aware that RAE does not include this word but I have read several threads in Internet about it and people seems to accept this translation, also in academic essays. Another option might be 'recurrencia cíclica'

Here are the threads I have seen:

https://forum.wordreference.com/threads/cyclicality.1732588/

What are your thoughts?

Thanks!

Noelia

Hi Noelia!

Given the evidence you've found, I believe you can safely use ciclicidad in your translation. 

Moreover, the Fundeu also considers this is a well formed word in Spanish.

Good luck!

Hi Virginia!

Thank you for replying in this thread too!

I have followed your advice and use ciclicidad.

Also, I completely forgot checking Fundeu! So, good to know they also approve the use of the word.

Regards,

Noelia
