has little to do with technical terms. Most people call the thing that propels a car a 'motor', but any automotive engineer will tell you it's an engine - and woe be the translator who calls it a "motor" in a technical document! In this case "discoverability" is supported by good references. If the publication is not intended for a professional audience, it might be advantagous to add a description of the term. But reducing the translation from a professional level document to 'street slang' is not a viable option.
