  Hi Jože,
  I too have trouble with these translations. I translated them
"temporarily" so I could check if they right, according to the context.
  1- Parts. I have thought a lot about this one and I haven't found any use
of the word in English which would not be equally ambiguous in Spanish.
  2- Assembly. I think I got this one right; I translated it as
"Ensamblador" as in the "assembly language", not "Ensamblaje" as in
"assembly of furniture"
  3- Steps, the same as "Parts", it's equally ambiguous.
