translating webhook ?
The highlighted comment was created in this revision.
What are synonyms for that word ? what is behind ? A lot of messages to translate are concerned. Thanks
An article exists at w:Webhook. It's a rather technical term, usually directed only at developers. In a specific application, it might have a more specific meaning which can be conveyed by other words, but a generic translation in French may not exist yet.
Great! thanks !
A webhook in web development is a method of augmenting or altering the behaviour of a web page, or web application; Webhooks are "user-defined HTTP callbacks".
So I will propose something like "point d'ancrage web" for FR in extenso translations.
A common translation for “hook” in web development is “crochet” (see https://glossaire.traduc.org/ for example) or sometimes “point d’entrée”.
“point d’ancrage” is a mix between the both translations, maybe a pretty good idea.
Depending of the context, we may use English word “hook” which is well-known (and commonly used) by all developers.
“web” should indeed stay “web” in French.
