If I ask which word I should use for an English word, should I use or ?

I understand that two tags are different, since I could ask which Esperanto word I should use describing what I mean, but which tag should I use when I replace the description of the meaning with an English word?

As I see it:

  • if you want a translation, it is the general tag for when no more precise tag exist
  • if you want a translation into one Esperanto word (using word-compounding if necessary)
