Re: 微机 translation confirmation


Firstly - it means literally "construct model" and probably best translates to English as "modelling" (definitely not used to refer to fashion modelling).

At a quick glance the usage of the term on the Internet, covers mathematical modelling, 3D modelling and also as a part of the explanation or terms for computer, languages and others types of "modelling".

Namely it appears to be as generic as the verb / noun "modelling" is in English and is based around structure - namely is not just used to mean computer modelling, but does mean there is a structured element to the model, behind what this term is associated too (clearly it also can not be confused with fashion modelling / models at all, which is a different word and concept in Chinese altogether).

Hope comments help.

Cheers, Asiaplay
