    I'm translating the editorial calendar of a construction magazine, and the word "formaleta" came up. I can't give you any context because it's a list, so it doesn't say anything else.

    According to the DRAE, "formaleta" is:


    (Del cat. formalet, arco de medio punto).


    1. f. Armazón que sostiene un arco.

    2. f. C. Rica. Armazón de madera con que se construye una viga o cualquier pieza de cemento.


    Does anyone know what "formaleta" is and how to translate it into English?

    What else is in the list?
    Puede ser un encofrado.
    También aveces usado para una paleta o estiba.

    ¡Gracias Rholt!

    But I don't think the items in the list are related to each other... it's just a list of the topics to be included in that issue. Here it is:

    ESPECIAL: PERSPECTIVAS 2008
    • Fachadas: Pieles vítreas
    Formaletas
    • Pinturas para madera
    • Sist. de Seguridad en edificaciones públicas y hogares
    • Tecnología del agua: Pegamentos para tubería PVC

    then it must be about encofrados.
