For example, do you IT guys in China use 'LIFO - Last In First Out' or do you translate that term into Chinese language when communicating with each other?
DRAM 動態隨機存取記憶體 Dynamic Random Access Memory
CPU 中央處理器 Central Processing Unit
會有 學術機構 或者 工業公會 做 翻譯 這方面的事
而從業人員 習慣上 還是直呼 DRAM CPU ...
LIFO / FIFO 在會計學上 是對存貨的評估方法
稱為 後進先出法 / 先進先出法
依然可以適用在 IT 產業
