German term or phrase: Kugelspindelgetriebe
Erstmals beim ### kommt eine elektromechanische Lenkung mit riemengetriebenem Kugelspindelgetriebe und achsparallel angeordnetem Elektromotor zum Einsatz.

This is from a text about a 4x4 SUV. The steering is assisted by an electric motor mounted parallel to the rack for more efficiency. Does anyone know if the Kugelspindelgetriebe is a "recirculating ball system"?

According to Howstuffworks this is common on SUVs:
