Definition: ordinateur

(organizer) The word ordinateur means "organizer" in French, but it also means "computer." Considering how much a computer is used to organize time and information rather than solving mathematical problems (computing), "organizer" might have been the more accurate word in English.

In Spanish-speaking countries, the word for computer also means organizer. In Latin America, the word is "computadora," while in Spain it is "ordenador." See computers are copy machines.
