bead
Explanation:
Omdat het een zeer specifieke term betreft die alleen voor programmeurs interessant is;
en omdat er naar mijn weten geen Nederlandse vertaling van de specificatie van de interne structuur van een pdf-bestand is (de spec. is een ISO-norm die niet in alle talen wordt vertaald);
en omdat iedereen die op dit niveau bezig is per definitie goed Engels moet kennen:
zou ik de term niet vertalen, hoogstens tussen quotes zetten of cursief maken om aan te geven dat het geen vertaalde term is.

Reference: Pdf structuur

Reference information:
Some types of documents may contain sequences of content items that are logically connected but not physically sequential. For example, a news story may begin on the first page of a newsletter and run over onto one or more nonconsecutive interior pages. To represent such sequences of physically discontiguous but logically related items, a PDF document may define one or more articles (PDF 1.1). The sequential flow of an article is defined by an article thread; the individual content items that make up the article are called beads on the thread. PDF viewer applications can provide navigation facilities to allow the user to follow a thread from one bead to the next.

The optional Threads entry in the document catalog (see Section 3.6.1, “Docu ment Catalog”) holds an array of thread dictionaries (Table 8.7) defining the doc ument’s articles. Each individual bead within a thread is represented by a bead dictionary (Table 8.8). The thread dictionary’s F entry points to the first bead in the thread; the beads are chained together sequentially in a doubly linked list through their N (next) and V (previous) entries. In addition, for each page on which article beads appear, the page object (see “Page Objects” on page 119) should contain a B entry whose value is an array of indirect references to the beads on the page, in drawing order.
