[ RadSafe ] Spanish translation of two words

Dear Armin,

The first one is not correct, for "portal monitor" you can use "detector de pórtico"  but you can also use the correct form "pórtico de detección", usually "pórtico de detección de radiaciones".

For the second one, although "detector de mano" can be understood, I think the term "detector manual" is more correct.

Best Regards
Juan Carlos

Asunto: [ RadSafe ] Spanish translation of two words
Dear Spanish-speaking Radsafe colleagues,

Can anyone offer a translation for the words "portal monitor" and "handheld detector?"

I don't want to trust this to Google Translate which returns: "portal del monitor" and "detector de mano"

I would like to know the exact words radiation professionals use.

Thank you so much in advance!

Armin Ansari
