Chinese translations of OS terminologies (WIP)

The meaning is distorted when terminologies are translated, even if they are translated by the literal meanings. In this post I list some translations that I think are “bad”, and hopefully some better translations. (well, unluckily for most of them I can’t think of a better one.)

Potentially “bad” translations

in English in Chinese Proposal Notes
function 函数 ~
trap 陷入 ~

And why do I write a post about chinese language in english? well, because thanks to wayland, using pinyin in the terminal is not pleasant.
