The TransLex Team has included in the Commentary to TransLex-Principle IV.5.1 a section on the interpretation of legal smart contracts expressed in code. In formulating this section, we sought inspiration from the English Law Commission Report, Smart legal contracts, Advice to Government, November 2021. Many thanks to Dr. Thomas von Plehwe, member of the bar of the German Federal Supreme Court (BGH) for making us aware of the "reasonable coder test".
Professor Dr. Santiago Dussan, LL.M. (Univ. of Cologne) from Pontificia Universidad Javeriana in Cali, Colombia has examined the meaning of the good faith principle in TransLex from a law and economics perspective in the Revista de Estudos Constitucionais, Hermeneutica e Teoria do Direito 2021.

The text of the Principles of Latin American Contract Law (PLACL) is now available here. Many thanks to Rodrigo Momberg and Stefan Vogenauer for allowing us to reproduce their English translation of the PLACL.
