Bus/Financial - Economics / economics
English term or phrase: Acting Deputy General Manager
Kontext ist Vertrag, bei den Unterschriften lautet der Titel einer Partei nach dem Namen:

"Acting Deputy General Manager
Economics, Finance & Commerce"

Wäre es vielleicht nicht sogar besser, den englischen Titel im Original zu belassen? Oder nur den zweiten Teil nicht übersetzen? Problem ist auch, dass es nicht eindeutig brit. oder amerik. Englisch zugeordnet werden kann und dass nicht klar ist, ob es um einen Generaldirektor oder Geschäftsführer geht.

Hat jemand einen hilfreichen Tipp?

\"Finanz und Marketing\"
would be my suggestion; economics and finance in English are very much used to cover similar ground, but economics here tend to be associated more with politics than companies....

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Steffen Walter: I'd leave the EN title and add a footnote. Stv. Geschäftsführer (kommissarisch) would be possible as well, though (and is my preferred option as Generaldirektor is pretty unusual, at least in "German" German).

agree  LegalTrans D: absolut richtig, David - und zu Steffen: Warum den Titel nicht übersetzen? Und warum nicht Generaldirektor, auch wenn er in D nicht gebräuchlich ist? Anderswo gibt's ihn eben, daran müssen sich unsere teutonischen Landsleute gewöhnen.
11 mins

agree  Derek Gill Franßen: Also with Volkmar, although I think they already have gotten used to it - that's what the Germans call the heads of UNESCO, WTO, etc.
