Romanian term or phrase: plan de glisare
De exemplu, o reflexie a unui punct structural de coordonate (x, y, z) faţă de un plan de glisare a (a se vedea cazul din Tabelul 5.II, din linia a treia) se va nota prin a(x, y, z) şi va produce punctul de coordonate (1/2+x, -y, z).

If the glide plane in the above figure has its normal to the screen Y direction and passes through the origin, then the effect of the symmetry element is to reverse the sign of the y coordinate (due to reflection) and to add one-half to the x coordinate (due to translation).
The resulting symmetry operator, in this instance, is therefore given by 1/2+x,-y,z; and the symbol for the glide plane is a.
