I'm not entirely sure what a "director" actually is? I'm assuming it's not always about movies.
Yeah, I have the feeling that there is no good equivalent in English... Polish "dyrektor" doesn't have anything to do with movies, the guy that directs movies is "reżyser".
"dyrektor" is a director (head?) of a company, or sometimes of a department. Also, a school principal/headmaster.
The term 'director' is used quite frequently in government, typically the manager of a team responsible for a certain defined area
I think it would rather be "kierownik", although I can't guarantee that "dyrektor" won't be used here.
is that after italian, reżyser? even if it isn't, there are a few (italian words in polish). do you know why that is?
