Explanation:

Americana: Colección de documentos, objetos, etc. (literarios, históricos, etnológicos, etc.) relativos a las Estados Unidos de América.(ref 2)


«The notion of Americana is helping the overseas business a lot. A&W has been doing business outside the states for thirty-five years, and when I bought the company we were doing business in nine countries. Today we are either doing business in or have signed agreements to build stores in more than twenty countries. And in almost every place we are, what gets featured—and what the people like—is that we’re an icon for Americana. No matter what people overseas think about America’s politics, there’s a great love for America and its products. A&W legitimately lays claim to that, and that’s why we have done so well overseas.» (ref 1)

El significado particular de 'americana' depende del contexto más amplio.

AMERICANA, SEÑALAMIENTO, SERVICIO EN EL COCHE


Explanation:
TO BE TRUTHFUL, THERE IS NOT ENOUGH CONTEXT TO REALLY TELL YOU WHAT IS THE MEANING OF THESE WORDS.

AMERICANA - IS THE FEMININE OF AMERICANO OR "AMERICAN"

SIGNAGE: I KIND OF UNDERSTAND THAT IS SOMETHING RELATED TO SIGNALING.

DRIVE THRU - I UNDERSTAND THAT IS SOMETHING LIKE THE SIGNALS THAT YOU FIND IN MCDONALDS OR OTHER FOOD SERVICES TO ORDER AND PICK UP YOUR FOOD DRIVING YOUR CAR THROUGH.

GOOD LUCK.

sobre signage


Explanation:
Puede ser autentificación de firmas digitales, o bien señalamientos, letreros o anuncios (luminosos, etc.) con el nombre de establecimientos comerciales, etc.

Lo siguiente es una muestra de lo que aparece en le Open Directory Project bajo el encabezado 'Business Services: Signage':

«Abp Sign, Inc. - A company providing identity to its clients: a wide variety of signage, displays, awnings and special projects; Bellingham, Massachusetts based.
Action National Sign Service - Providing retailers with national sign service, repair, and maintenance.
AdMart - Custom, dimensional signs, lettering, logos and graphics. We are the industry leader, providing the retail market with unique and custom singage solutions. Kentucky.
Ad-tech International, Inc - Convert almost any single image static sign location into a multiple image advertising opportunity. Atlanta, GA.
AirSpin Sign Company - Manufactures and sells an outdoor sign with customized panels that spins in the breeze. These signs attach to buildings, poles, or are available as a free standing sign.»

De nuevo, el contexto más amplio te dirá cuál de los dos significados es.
