Say if in a biology textbook written in the english language it says....
"The area in which substrate molecules bind to enzymes is called the active site"
Does that mean that the said area in an enzyme is known as the active site only in english? For example in another language such as French, that area of the enzyme wouldn't be called an "active site".
It would probably be translated into the other language's equivalent of "active site" so speakers of other languages understand it, but it would still mean the same thing.
