English term or phrase:Phrase below:
...a new standard for wireless short distance radio communications
was translated as:
un nuevo estándar para comunicaciones radiales inalámbricas de corta distancia
...and revised as:
un nuevo protocolo de comunicaciones inalámbricas de corta distancia
I think that not all wireless communication is radio communication, and the reference to radio is necessary. Protocolo does not appear in the source. I think the reviser is doing unnecessary changes. What do you think? Thanks to all.

Explanation: protocole in this case is being used as synonim for standard

Explanation: I agree with your translation. Although maybe protocolo instead of estandar is OK.

Explanation: The revisor is simply trying to justify his/her keep by changing things to mean the same by sounding a tad different, out or boredom perhaps or just to say, hey... this is how I like it OK? Let me be!
Explanation: But I absolutely agree with you regarding radio: Not all wireless communication is radio communication. Unnecessary changes were made in the case of protocolo, and a mistake was made when skipping radio.
