Sanskrit and Pali being both indic languages, they have a lot in common.
Samadhi is used in both. As for its relationship to Dhyana (Skt.) / Jhana (P.), here is something very approximate:
Samadhi has a broader "scope" than Dhyana, which refers to specific meditative states (the 4 Dhyanas / Jhanas).
However, in some cases / tradition, Dhyana also has a broad meaning that does not restrict it to specific states.
