It could also be "the court"

Another strange non-English (?) word here out of context: tribunal. In English a tribunal is a decision-making committee (usually legal or regulatory). But you wouldn't "see" one through a window. Is the translation another Americanism?

Could ~pela janela´ also mean through the window?

Why is "the courtroom" not accepted?

Why is law court marked as wrong? This seams like a rather unusual use of the word tribunal which would normally refer to a forum of sorts such as an international tribunal being formed or a military tribunal etc... I have never seen the word used to describe the building where a tribunal is convened.
