What is the difference between initialize and initiate words? Where should we use and can somebody explain it with some examples.
They both imply we start something
Cause (a process or action) to begin: "initiate discussions".
Set to the value or put in the condition appropriate to the start of an operation.
Also if you initiate something, it is your initiative, whereas if you initialise something, you can have been asked to do so.
In programming, we use the word initialise, when we declare a variable and give it an initial value
Initiate means to start something, and there is often (though not always) an implication that this is something new, that has never been done before.
Initialize means to set a system to a starting state. This may be one step (or even the only step) in initiating the system.
Initiate means to start, engage, or begin something.
Initialize means to take the beginning letters of something. For example, United States of America becomes USA. Such initialization is very common. It can also mean to apply initial value to something that will have a variable value, over time.
