Portuguese term or phrase: Absail
Gostaria de saber qual a diferença entre absail e Rappel.

English translation:veja em baixo
Explanation:
segundo creio não existe diferença.´São maneiras diferentes de dizer a mesma coisa. Em Português chamamos-lhe rapel. Em Inglês chama-se "rappel" ou "abseil", se bem que por vezes se encontra esta palavra escrita com "a", ou seja "absail".

Veja alguns exemplos:

abseil é o mesmo que rappel


Explanation:
A B S E I L I N G

Abseiling involves having LOTS of fun and boosting your self confidence sliding safely down a rope under
control, but to be really cool you have to get your pronunciation right, so please pay attention !

In German "Seil" = rope (n.b. pronounced SIGH..L not SAIL)
& "Ab" = go down. Americans might not be able to say
ABSEIL, because they use the French word "rapelling" instead.

Texto retirado de uma página na Internet (referência abaixo). Há diversas outras referências a rappel e abseil (ou absail) nos mecanismos de busca.

Espero que ajude.
