I'm translating a text, and came across the following definition:
security printer: producer of printed documents or products of value or entitlement, ID documents or security foils (3.25) which are physically protected against forgery, counterfeit and alteration by security features (3.26).
What is the difference between forgery and counterfeit in the context of security printing?
I googled for definitions but found no difference, they seem to be synonymous. In Russian, there is only one word, подделка (poddelka) for both these senses, and I'm at a loss on how to translate this.
