English term or phrase: type-founding
La mulți ani tuturor!

Îmi dă bătăi de cap termenul acesta de la care sunt retrimisă spre „movable type” (http://www.thefreedictionary.com/typefounding), care este:

„Type in which each character is cast on a separate piece of metal”

Poate cineva se pricepe mai bine la acest domeniu. Ar trebui să înțeleg ca „movable type” (în română „litere care se mișcă în formă” este același lucru cu type-founding, termen care mă interesează pe mine de fapt?

Vă mulțumesc.
