    say in other words

    Hi dear experts,
    Could you paraphrase or say in other words the sentence below. Particularly the underlined part. I need to translate it into my native language, but I can't get the meaning. It is about routers.

    "Some of the ports are bays which can be fitted with different media transceivers, powerful processing units and very sophisticated network software, allowing many different options to be configured."

    I’m not a teacher, nor yet an expert.

    Hi snade17,

    fitted = satisfying certain requirements, as for selection: eligible, fit1, qualified, suitable, worthy

    fit with = fit out = equip, furnish, supply with equipment, machinery

    Regards,

    Hi spade17,


    Това е моят превод набързо.


    "Some of the ports are bays which can be fitted with different media transceivers, powerful processing units and very sophisticated network software, allowing many different options to be configured."

    Някои от пристанищата са заливи, които могат да бъдат съоръжени с рзлични медийни трнсивери, мощни блокове за обработване и много усъвъшенствувани софтуерни мрежи, давящи възможност за конфигуриране на различни опции.


    Regards,

    Re: say in other words

    Много благодаря. Това е чудесен превод на изречението извън контекст. Моята грешка е, че не поясних, че става въпрос за портовете на мрежовото устройство - рутер/router.
    Много добър пример за лекцията "Теория на превода".

    Re: say in other words

    Hi spade17,

    Such being the case, when you want to say something about a network device that forwards packets from one network to another, you have to use “panel” in the place of the very ambiguous and tricky “bay”.


    bay (n) = booth, compartment, niche, nook, opening, recess, stall


    Regards,
