I think most translators are very fond of words and references like this are big temptations: should I grab all the terms, find (or write, as I know many of them after watching the Tour on TV for many years) the Spanish equivalents and make a nice termbase with it all?
The idea is enormously attractive. As it would be to record bird species in several languages (it is said that some 4-5 thousand exist, some 800 only in Europe), engine parts, semiconductors, screw and bolt types, layers of a road, types of bridges and their parts, etc. It's just a disgrace that we don't have the time to research all these things! If we translators spent 1 hour a day researching new fields for the proper terms, we would soon understand that knowledge is a synonym of words. Know the words, and you know it all!
