 Spanish term or phrase: Matriz de Escalado text from Spain about the operation and maintenance of a computer network system. This is not really technical, more business style, but I do not know this expression - here's the context (the quotation marks are the author's) and TIA! Si el horario de contacto fuese distinto de 24x7 XXXXX lo hará constar en la *“Matriz de Escalado”* del presente documento.

Difficult to be certain without more context but this could well be it. Escalation as in escalation of problems, fault reports, etc.

void get_scaling_matrix(MATRIX *m, fixed x, fixed y, fixed z);
Construye una matriz de escalado, almacenándola en m. Cuando se aplica a un punto (px, py, pz), esta matriz produce un punto (px*x, py*y, pz*z). En otras palabras, agranda o empequeñece las cosas.

otra función que devuelva una matriz de escalado dados sus factores de escala en x e y, y su punto fijo.

Saludos!

http://encyclopedia.thefreedictionary.com/Scaling (computer ...
In telecommunications and software engineering, scalability is a desirable property of a system, a network, or a process, which indicates its ability to either handle growing amounts of work in a graceful manner, or to be readily enlarged.[1] For example, it can refer to the capability of a system to increase total throughput under an increased load when resources (typically hardware) are added. An analogous meaning is implied when the word is used in a commercial context, where scalability of a company implies that the underlying business model offers the potential for economic growth within the company.

A scaling can be represented by a scaling matrix.

An iterative algorithm for searching a scaling matrix for diagonal dominance
Diagonal dominance of matrices and M-matrices (and H-matrices) play an important role in stability theory of dynamical systems.
