A real English/English question for a change ;-)
Is the above a real word in English or a mere coinage from French or Spanish?
There are 43 hits for it on Google - but all to French or Spanish sites.
Is there a single English word describing the Art/Science of Translation?
I also found a few UK hits on Google and one Canadian one. Most were French, Spanish, Greek etc. though! I would say translation studies or something like that myself. I don't think there is any other single word in English to describe this.

Let us, here at Proz, do what we can to sink these awful coinages. Spanish University pages seem especially full of ugly "transliterations" like this one. Probably some bad translator "transliterated" these terms some time back and, thanks to web searches, they have been repeated and given a legitimacy that they really do not deserve.
