German to English translations [PRO] Bus/Financial - Business/Commerce (general) / Swiss user satisfaction survey
German term or phrase:Instradierung
Context: Damit wir den Fragebogen optimal auswerten können, sind wir auf die Angabe Ihrer Instradierung (mindestens die ersten 3 Stellen) angewiesen:
This is a questionnaire by a Swiss company into employee satisfaction with the company's IT services. From other occurences of the term I think Instradierung is some kind of organisational unit, or perhaps an employee's position therein.
Thanks Steffen, I thought I'd graded this long ago but the system thinks I didn't - I honestly can't remember my final translation decision but I believe it depends on & the answer you gave is one possibility 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
Stephen, please close and grade your open questions. M

employee ID (number)
Explanation: Just guessing on the basis of the "ersten 3 Stellen" (first three digits). This might also be a department/business unit ID.

departmental designation (in the sense of routing)
Explanation: Little more than a guess, I'm afraid, but the word itself is given in Wahrig as meaning "routing or sending on the way, forwarding etc". The word itself is of Italian origin ("in + strada"; in, auf, Weg, Strasse). A company might well use such a term in the way suggested above.
