Spanish term or phrase:sobreposicionar
Debido a la imposibilidad de colocar las tres estructuras estudiadas en la
misma posición durante el escaneado, se procede a sobreposicionar el
conjunto de los vectores directores de cada una de las fases obteniendo
la misma posición y dirección para todos los escaneados.
Comparing the scanning results of different dental implant processes.
I could not find this term in any dictionary. 'Superimpose'?
Chris, I would say that it is not that usual in common language, just in specialized fields. I agree with you, "overlap" corresponds to the Spanish terms "solapar/traslapar", which are not exactly the same as "superposicionar" (they have quite similar meanings though). Regards, Marta.
