English to Portuguese translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering
English term or phrase:front-end/back-end
Esses termos deveriam ser deixados no inglês mesmo ou têm uma tradução mais "abrasileirada"?
The main problem with e-tailers is that they initially focus on a lot of the **front-end** Web sites and don't think about the **back-end** fulfillment piece.
front end n. 1. An intermediary computer that does set-up and filtering for another (usually more powerful but less friendly) machine (a `back end'). 2. What you're talking to when you have a conversation with someone who is making replies without paying attention. "Look at the dancing elephants!" "Uh-huh." "Do you know what I just said?" "Sorry, you were talking to the front end." 3. Software that provides an interface to another program `behind' it, which may not be as user-friendly. Probably from analogy with hardware front-ends (see sense 1) that interfaced with mainframes.
Both are defined, as above in No 1. A translation probably wouldn't do the terms justice. The first might refer to the 'aspect, user-firendliness, etc' of a site (the interface with the user), the second to its actual 'technology', how well it works, etc.
These are Microsoft pages where the terms are untranslated:
