welding summary

HI,

I am translating a manual for Multitube Hairpin Heat Ecxhangers and met there such expression as a welding summary.

"Welding

a. Welding summary and welding bookwill be in accordance with our standards and established on our own forms.

b. Welding Procedure Qualifications and Welder's Performance Qualifications will be in strict accordance with the requirements of ASME Code Section IX only. No additional requirements will be considered.

c. Essential & non-essential variables will only be those given by ASME Code Section IX.

d. Welding procedure specifications and procedure qualifications will be submitted for review."

As the French company is a manufacturer of this equipment I wonder whether such an expression as welding summary exist at all in English.

    A 'summary' is a brief description of something that is probably complex; "Welding summary" is not a specific technical term - it simply means Multitube Hairpin have produced a (probably) short guide to welding. A computer programming company might produce a "Programming summary" (a short explanation of programming), or a university might produce a "Course summary" (a short guide to the academic courses it offers) etc etc

    I am very cautious about offering you advice here, as this is obviously a specialised technical area. The phrase "welding summary" may refer (a) to a set of procedures, or it may refer (b) to the progress of an individual manufactured item. Apart from this, I feel that you need guidance from an expert in the field. You might try the French - English translation forum.

    If you Google "welding summary" (with quotes), you will find few references in the context you provide, but a few do exist.

    Also, you do not "meet" words (unless you shake hands and exchange pleasantries with them) you "encounter" or "come across" words in written text.

    I'd disagree a little with the "meet" thing - I certainly wouldn't say "I've just met an unusual word", but I would say "I've never met such an expression". After all, it's not "words" that Andrew1980 was referring to, but expressions.
