Session != communication != link != whatever. When you start using
more than one word to mean the same thing, you create confusion. This
isn't a translation issue, rather it's an issue that translation
uncovers rather bluntly. Consistency is best, even if repetitive.
Besides, some people do need info drilled into them. ;)
