    de⋅scrip⋅tor

    –noun 1.a significant word or phrase used to categorize or describe text or other material, esp. when indexing or in an information retrieval system.2.Computers. a data item that stores the attributes of some other datum: a task descriptor.



    It refers to anything that describes the person. In Spanish, maybe "descriptor"(computer science) or "información identificatoria".
    Hope that helps.
