    Default English word help

    My official title at work is konstruktør

    Translated that becomes constructor but believe the word has a different meaning in english more building construction or something.

    Anyone wanna to help me out?

    No spesific work group usually calls itself that, Sometimes they search for a technical drawer?, engineer, designer or even technician.

    Just wondering if there is a word that translates better.

    Can you describe what you do? Do you mean something like an architect? (A person who designs buildings and draws up plans for them?)

    'Constructor' isn't really used in English, although anyone would know what it generally means in context.

    So tell us what you do and we'll give you a title for that activity.

    Mostly i draw mechanical tools/machines/equipment. Sometimes i update some drawings for external firms. And right now im in a prosject where i am kinda overlooking the preparations to a new 35tonn lathe. ive made the drawing to digging and also some safety drawings as according to the geo technician firm. i am also setting the spec to some of the other machines/equipment we need. I am also trying to collect info about what rules we must conform with. I mostly glue things together by the info given from others.

    In the same prosject i also am in charge of the drawings related to the layout and the new lathe(ensuring they are up to date and correct) I also make new ones when required.

    The drawing of mechanical tools/machines is my main thingy. A lot of problems to solve. Im not getting much time for that now tho.

    Sounds very much like you're a draftsman to me. Since there are quite a few different types of draftsman depending on the kind of entity that they draw, I think the more specific definition of "technical draftsman" applies to you as one who draws machinery. My brother would have described himself thus when he was doing virtually the same job as you're now doing (even worked with similar types of equipment, as far as I recall) .

    Sounds like a subdiscipline of Mechanical Engineer? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mechani...n_and_Drafting

    O*Net would likely be good for you to peruse. The perferred term these days is drafter.

    In America we call those people Strippers. So you can use that to describe your work to anyone who speaks English.
