Note: Scales with fixed counterweights at one end of a horizontal bar, a movable fulcrum which allows for changes in the ratio of the lengths of the arms, and a single hook from which to attach the item to be weighed; for scales of similar form, but with a fixed fulcrum and a movable counterweight, use "steelyards."

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Weegschalen met vaste tegenwichten aan één uiteinde van een horizontale balk, met een verschuifbaar draaipunt waardoor de verhouding van de lengte van de armen kan worden veranderd, en met een enkel haakje om het te wegen voorwerp aan te hangen; gebruik 'unsters' voor weegschalen met een soortgelijke vorm maar met een vast draaipunt en verschuifbare gewichten. 
German ..... Waage mit festem Gegengewicht an einem Ende eines horizontalen Balkens, einem beweglichen Drehpunkt, durch den das Längenverhältnis der Arme verändert werden kann, und einem einzelnen Haken, an dem das zu wiegende Objekt gehängt wird; für eine Waage ähnlicher Bauform, aber mit festem Drehpunkt und beweglichem Gegengewicht, ist "Laufgewichtswaage" zu verwenden. 
Spanish ..... Básculas con contrapesos fijos en uno de los extremos de una barra horizontal, un fulcro movible que permite cambios en la proporción de la longitud de los brazos, y un solo gancho desde el cual se suspende el objeto a ser pesado; para básculas de forma similar, pero con un fulcro fijo y un contrapeso movible, use "romana”.
