Explanation:
Es una traducción dificil por dos cosas.

Hablamos de términos cuya traducción literal no tiene absolutamente nada que ver con la idea que se expresa en el original. Hablar de profundidad o de cuerpo, o de sinónimos, no nos dice absolutamente nada.

En segundo lugar, En el original estamos hablando ya de dos sinónimos, un término repetido con dos acepciones. ¿Hemos de crear dos traducciones diferentes, una para cada uno?

He optado por lo tanto por olvidarme completamente de los términos ingleses y centrarme en la descripción de lo que hacen y de como funcionan esos filtros. De esta forma, además, opto por traducir un solo término, que traduce a los dos sinonimos presentados.
