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.

Although in Latin America the word for computer is "computadora," in Spain it is "ordenador," the same as the French word.
