      Description

      Friendly

      +adj. agradable (informàtica), amable (persona), amanós (literàriament i formalment)

      Especialment en entorns informàtics, és millor traduir friendly per agradable que per amistós. Eviteu sobretot de traduir-lo per amigable.

        Doncs, precisament "amigable" és el que proposa el Termcat. ¿Per què no és adequat usar-lo?

        Segons el DLC:

        amigable
        adj. [LC] Que obra, que té lloc, per via de conciliació. Amigable componedor. Partició amigable.

        Jo no li veig la relació amb "friendly" tret que tant "amigable" com "friendly" deriven de "amic" i "friend", respectivament.

        A més de la definició de user-friendly, especialment adreçada a l'entorn informàtic i que només diu "senzill, fàcil d'usar", al Cambridge:

        friendly
        adjective
        1 behaving in a pleasant, kind way towards someone:
        a friendly face/smile
        Our neighbours have always been very friendly to/towards us.
        I'm on quite friendly terms with my daughter's teacher.
        Are you friendly with (= a friend of) Graham?
        2 describes a place that is pleasant and that makes you feel happy and comfortable:
        It's a friendly little restaurant.
        3 A friendly game or argument is one which you play or have for pleasure and in order to practise your skills, rather than playing or arguing seriously with the aim of winning:
        We were having a friendly argument about Green politics.
        The teams are playing a friendly match on Sunday.

        Això s'adiu més amb la, altre cop, del DLC:

        agradable
        adj. [LC] Que agrada, que fa plaer. Un so agradable. Un gust o un sabor agradable. Té un aspecte agradable. Una companyia agradable.

        amable
        1 **no és el cas i mai l'he vist usat amb aquest sentit**
        2 adj. [LC] De natural plaent, afectuós. Amb mi sempre és molt amable.

        It looks as though amigable = amicable, which is not quite the same as friendly. It is usually applied to a mutually acceptable agreement of some sort: "Their divorce was quite amicable - they still have lunch together once a week."

        So "user-friendly" (for computer operating systems, software, and by extension all sorts of other things) would be agradable???

        A friendly match (usually just called a friendly) is an amistós, no? As in Barça won their friendly against Heart of Midlothian, although TV3 insisted that they were playing "Hearts of Midlothian".
