I'll answer the question you posted on the question line, but would appreciate it if you would repost your term requests as separate entries for each term.
Here is what Termium has for "précompte":
precompute s CORRECT

One of the reasons for posting term requests is so other translators can come along later and search the data base for answers to their own term questions. However, the only way to locate a term is through the request "header" info (the "term" part of the request form). If other terms are buried in the "explanation" part of the request, the info will not be available to the searcher.
Another reason for posting multiple requests, one for each term, of course, is that it is in your immediate self-interest. A potential answerer might be discouraged from answering, just because it is a multiple post. That is, s/he might know the answer to one of your terms, but not to the others. Also, while answerers sign up to help out on KudoZ mainly becasue they are interested in being helpful, they are also interested in getting those KudoZ points. So if they need to spend time researching a query before answering it, they are more likely to spend their time looking up answers where they are more likely to get more KudoZ points for their efforts.
