|German term or phrase: Spannungsbogen|
|Press release, paragraph title: "Wie ein Spannungsbogen"|
Text further on: "2002 kann er planbar abarbeiten. Das Program für die Kür ist aufgegaut wie ein SPANNUNGSBOGEN: Im ersten Halbjahr wurden die Ziele gesetzt und publiziert, und ab Herbst werde grosse Investor Relations Kampagnen rund um die Welt gefahren."
Is this a metaphore referring to a bow used to play a violin? (if it is, I don't really get the image anyway!)
Thanks for your help.
|A drawn bow|
I think the metaphor is to do with an archery bow rather than a violin bow.
The campaign is prepared over a long period (drawing the bow), and then suddenly launched (firing the arrow).

No, this is meant as 'Spannung' in a sentence = tension
You build up the tension at the beginning of a sentence, don't loose it over the whole sentence and slowly release it at the end of a sentence. Kür is part of an iceskating competition and is the part, which the skaters can choose themselves in contrary to the so-called 'Pflichtprogramm', during which they have to skate all the same figures.
Perhaps you could translate this sentence as: This programme has been developed in an ideal way:...
