“User experience” y “UX” en el Oxford Dictionaries

Podríamos considerarlo un hecho irrelevante, anecdótico o pasajero pero está bien saberlo y darlo a conocer. En el mes de agosto el Oxford Dictionaries Online actualizó su diccionario online e incluyó en su vocabulario, entre otros, los términos “user experience”, “UX” y “UI”.

user experience
noun
the overall experience of a person using a product such as a website or computer application, especially in terms of how easy or pleasing it is to use:
if a website degrades the user experience too much, people will simply stay away.

UX
noun
short for USER EXPERIENCE.
the UX is absolutely seamless and users prefer that.

UI
noun
short for USER INTERFACE.
a cross-platform UI

De acuerdo, es el mismo diccionario que define “user” en su segunda acepción como “a person who exploits others”. Pero tiene el detalle de comenzar a hacer uso del concepto “experiencia de usuario” en la misma nota de prensa donde lo reconoce. Un guiño solidario y cautivador.

“The rich variety of new words from all manner of sources and levels of formality – popular culture, science, technology, politics, etc. – is striking in this update. I hope you enjoy our choices for inclusion: all carefully researched from evidence of the part these words, phrases, and acronyms currently play in our language. Oxford Dictionaries Online is an innovative free dictionary and language reference service and, with its regular updates, we aim to add more and more value to user experience.”
