|German term or phrase: Seitenholm|
I am currently translating a market study about cars. Does anybody know
1.) what a \"Seitenholm is\" (in German - a brief explanation is greatly appreciated) and
2.) what it is called in English?
Here is the sentence:
\"Die Abmessungen des Fahrzeuges können nicht gut eingeschätzt werden, denn die Seitenholme behindern die Sicht nach vorne.”
Thanks a lot in advance!!!
|'A post' / windscreen pillar|
As I read it, you're sitting in the car and your visibility is restricted by the posts at the side of the windscreen, so it's difficult to work out how big the car is (and when you're going to hit something!)
I'm not familiar with the word 'seitenholm', but from your sentence, I can't see what else it could be.

|Thank you, Mary!! Thanks for the explanation, it makes perfect sense. "A-post" ist the one, I've checked it. |
Thanks to everybody else who contributed their ideas and comments!!!
