Many of us non-native japanese speakers have experienced the difficult of katakana 外来語. In this case I am having trouble translating the word シュート。 Googling it, it seems that it means "shoot" but it does not make sense. So then I thought, maybe it means "shooter" (which to me sounds シューター)

What do you think? Is there any other way to translate シュート?

(the word refers to a machine parts that redirects things from one part of a machine to a particular place of that machine)

    Also, remember that any loan words do not necessarily come from just American or British English, it can be any other language.

シュート

shootではなく、Leeboさんのコメントにあるchuteだと思います。
飛行機のemergency escape chute などで使われます。

the word refers to a machine parts that redirects things from one part of a machine to a particular place of that machine

専門{せんもん}用語{ようご}ですので、分野{ぶんや}によっていろいろな言い方があります。 傾斜台{けいしゃだい}、落{お}とし樋{ひ}、滑降{かっこう}斜面路{しゃめんろ}、郵便{ゆうびん}投下{とうか}装置{そうち}/レターシュート letter chute、降{お}ろし樋{どい}、荷{に}滑{すべ}らし、...

多分、上記にない場合は、"chute シュート" ではなく、"chuter シューター" と言うことが多いと思います。

EDIT

日本語訳{にほんごやく}を見{み}ていますと、質問者{しつもんしゃ}が提示{ていじ}した定義{ていぎ}に加{くわ}えて「傾斜路{けいしゃろ}あるいは重力{じゅうりょく}を利用{りよう}して utilizing inclined paths or gravity」があると一層{いっそう}明確{めいかく}になると思{おも}います。

the word refers to a machine parts that redirects things from one part of a machine to a particular place of that machine by utilizing inclined paths or gravity
