The arrangement of standing stones in a straight line, as seen in a stone row. The relationship between an ancient site and some kind of celestial event, such as the solstice sunrise or sunset. For instance, a number of passage tombs are orientated towards a solstice sunrise or sunset so that the rising or setting sun shines into the burial chamber. Some stone circles have outlying stones which act as site marks for the sun or moon at particularly important times of the calendar. The science of deciphering the relationship between ancient sites and celestial events is known as archaeoastronomy. An arrangement of sites of historical interest in a straight line, often over long distances. Such alignments were noted by Alfred Watkins, and led to the development of Leyline theories as attempts to explain them.
the movement of a roadway through the landscape; its curves, straight sections and hills.

Matching segments or sentences in translated documents for importation as translation units or sentence pairs in a translation memory tool.
A process that consists of aligning, i.e. creating equivalents, segment by segment, between a source text and the corresponding target text. The resulting table of equivalents will then be used as a translation memory. Alignment thus makes it possible to use previous translations carried out without translation support software. Even with the help of special software programmes, alignment operations nevertheless still require a considerable amount of manual intervention.
The process of comparing a source text and its translation, matching the corresponding segments, and binding them together as translation units in a Translation Memory.

An alignment of a constructed or natural feature with the celestial movement of the sun, moon, or stars, or with the cardinal directions.
