Default "factoring" vs "factorizing"

I've noticed that "factoring" and "factorization" are often used interchangeably. However, is there any difference in semantics? I'm under the impression that "factoring" often refers to just finding a factor, while "factorizating" means finding all the factors.

Am I correct? Or is there no difference?
