English term or phrase: jack
connect a plug to a jack
Linda
Dutch translation:Steek een stekker in het contact.
Explanation:

As the others mentioned, it is really all about context. Is it for video, computer, electricity or phone cable ?

For "jack" the word "contact" would probably be the word that matches best with several options (steek een stekker in het contact).

You could go for "stopcontact" if it is about electricity.

"aansluiting" if you're talking about a cable for video or tv.

Good luck.

Explanation:
without further context, it's a bit difficult to know what's exactly meant.

Other than that, 'jack' ought to be mentioned in any good dictionary.

Explanation:
Zoals Evert al zei: moeilijk zonder context. Ik ken een jack plug die wordt gebruikt bij het aansluiten van computers en randapparatuur, wellicht gaat het om een dergelijke plug? In handleidingen kom je meestal zinnen tegen als: sluit de jack plug op de ingang (of uitgang) aan...

(maar volgens de juiste spelling zou "kontakt" als "contact" geschreven dienen te worden.
