Tech/Engineering - Engineering: Industrial / hardness tester
English term or phrase: pater testing
我在翻译一个有关"硬度测量仪"的文件,其中涉及到三个并列项:metal testing, concrete testing and pater testing,我知道前两项分别指的是金属测试和混凝土测试,可是不知道pater testing是什么测试.查英中字典也只查到pater是"父亲"的意思,这个单词的源词似乎是paternity.难道这里的pater testing是源头测试?请指教,谢谢!

会不会是原文问题?倒是有paper testing一说,是纸板检测的意思,有待考证!

agree  orientalhorizon: 有以“pater testing”来表示“亲子鉴定”的,似乎有人搞不清自己孩子的父亲到底是谁;另外还有似乎是以这个名字命名的检验。但此处似乎都不太合适,倒是paper testing较合适。
