Difference between Adminstration and Management

Should't Fayol's principles be called the 14 principles of Administration? Why was 'administration' (in the French language) translated into English in 1949 as 'management'? What differences are there between the area of studying administration and management?
Remember that the original concept from Henry Fayol was called "Administration, industrielle et generalle" (in French) so should be translated as : "General and industrial administration".

Management versus Administration? Differences

I think management and administration are the same.
The only difference however is that while administration is more popular with the public sector, management is more used in private, business settings.

Presently, administration indicates internal operations, whereas management term is used for a much wider meaning. Management refers not only to internal, but also to external activities.
