The proposal seems to replace "hardware" by "dispositivos"...

That could bring an overall consistency situation in D-I Spanish
translations (as well as other Spanish translations).

When it comes at French translations we always avoid such jargon/mix
of English and French words, however without falling in the trap
cionsisting of replacing every word by an equivalent. That's always a
balance to make between horrible jargon and unintelligible

In the case of "hardware", the balance for French clearly favors the
translation. We have a good word for this ("matériel") which everybody

From quite far, I would favor the replacement but I think that the
decision has to be taken by regular translators.
