Italian term or phrase: motrice
Più volte ho una frase tipo: Di seguito verranno definite le principali caratteristiche suddivise, in particolare, nella componente Trainante (Trattore e parte omologa Motrice) e Trainato (Semirimorchio, e parte omologa della Motrice). Il problema è che sia "trattore" sia "motrice" mi risultano "tractor" in inglese, ma non posso tradurre "tractor and the tractor that goes with it". O con "trattore" in realtà intendono "trailer"...oppure a "motrice" manca una parte della parola, tipo "ruota motrice", e se fosse così andrebbe bene: "tractor and the driving axle that goes with it". Qualcuno riesce a capirlo meglio di me?

Explanation:
Hi Alicia,
I'd say they're using "motrice" for motor vehicle, a self-propelled vehicle, in other words the whole thing made up of a tractor (Trattore) and a trailer (Semirimorchio).
