Mutatis mutandis is (literally) Latin for “with those things having been changed which need to be changed.” However, it is more often translated or understood to mean “the necessary changes having been made”. It essentially indicates that new terms have been substituted or that the reader should note any differences from the original and take them into consideration.

“After extensive negotiations and redrafting of several key provisions, the two parties finally signed the contract mutatis mutandis.”
