I need to verify my translation of 2 related statistical terms into Spanish, for presentation to an audience in Peru.
Sadly, the largest list of "Mathematics and Statistics" Spanish-English translations I found did not have these listed.
The terms are:
- Discriminant Coordinants
- Latent Variables
In English, these are defined as follows:
- Discriminate Coordinates -- a plot of the primary differences between clusters (in Discriminate Analysis, which is a subset of Cluster Analysis), and which, being based on latent variables and eigenvalues, is similar to Principal Components Analysis
- Latent Variable -- variables that are not directly observed but are rather inferred (through a mathematical model) from other variables that are observed
My best-guess translation for these are:
- Coordenadas Discriminantes
- Variable Latente
