German to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering - Computers: Software
German term or phrase:Standart Bausteine
Als Standart Bausteine werden FB´s und FC´s bezeichnet die mehrmalig innerhalb
eines Programmzyklus mit unterschiedlichem Dateninhalt bearbeitet werden und / oder deren IN, OUT, IN_OUT oder STAT als Schnittstelle verwendet wird.
Bausteine in this context are elements, blocks, components?
Thanks in advance
Exactly as you say, palilula. More precisely, it seems to be about computer programming, where specific vocabulary can be tricky because specific technical meanings could be a bit deceiving. That's why I'm trying to find the right word in English. In my last post in this discussion I explain briefly 2 terms in this field that could be thought share the same meaning, but don't. It could, of course, be programming blocks they're talking about. It even seems so. But then againg it could be something else.
I'd like to point out that I'm not discussing the term "standard". It's "blocks" and "modules" I'm not sure about.
It'd good to know what exactly they are talking about, and what do "FB" and "FC" stand for. Probably "Function Blocks", like meirs said. Judging by the commands seen there, I'd say it's some kind of storage reading program (HD, flash memory, CD).
the source word is Standard Baustein - the corresponding term should include standard and the main term is module or block. What does it bother someone to use the word standard in English as an adjective or whatever it is in term of linguistics.
JP Bigorda, we are not talking about linguistic terms here. It is about computers.
"Block" has a very specific meaning in programming. A block is the group of sentences contained within another sentence.
"Module" is another such word. It's synonym with "function" or "procedure". A series of sentences with a name that invokes them.
Some more context would come handy. What kind of program is this for?
You can use standard element, standard module, standard block
What is the matter?
Every electronics specialist will understand you. Gee, I was 23 when I used to deal with such terminology; however, it was live interpretations.
