English term or phrase: dynamo
Aus einem Patent:
For some HTML controls, such as drop down lists, **dynamos** may be created for retrieval of the actual lists of values from the database at the application runtime, in which case the corresponing HTML code for running the **dynamos** is added to HTML pages containing these controls.

script
Explanation:
I never heard the term "dynamo" related to programming. But from this context I suppose these so-called dynamos are just scripts that dynamically retrieve data. Does the rest of the text make any reference to the language this dynamos are written with?

The fact that this "dynamo" has to "run" and "retrieves values" is for me a 99% indication that it is a sequence of source code. And the context referring to web programming gives the indication that it could be a script language, so i would suggest translating it simply with the german "Skript" (sorry for misspelling it the first time). Or, as a second suggestion, "Funktion"

agree  Claudia Krysztofiak: Yes, in German it should be Skript; to me it seems they just want to coin a new term for their scripts or scriptlets
