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".
