Dutch term or phrase: winstgraad
I am currently translating a coursebook for 1st year Business Economics students, and am struggling with the above term.

The context is as follows:

"De mate waarin er ná het break-evenpunt winst ontstaat, wordt wel de winstgraad genoemd en wordt weergegeven door de hoek tussen de omzetlijn en de variabele kostenlijn."

"De grootte van deze hoek wordt volledig bepaald door het verschil tussen verkoopprijs en variabele kosten, dus de dekkingsbijdrage. In feite geeft genoemde hoek het percentage aan dat de dekkingsbijdrage van de verkoopprijs is. Het is dan eigenlijk ook juister om het begrip ‘bijdragepercentage’ te gebruiken in plaats van winstgraad."

I think "bijdragepercentage" is "contribution ratio", but how should "winstgraad" be translated?

All suggestions welcome - KudoZ points will be awarded within 72 hours.

Many thanks,

Anne
