German to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering - Computers: Software / menu item
German term or phrase:Verlauf
This is a menu navigation item in a customer's online learning tool.
According to the customer, when you click on "Verlauf", it shows you how many pages/elements/chapters of the tool you have already gone through and how many are left to go.
I suggested "status" or "progress" both of which the customer turned down, saying he is sure there is a specific technical term for this out there somewhere.
That may be true, but if so it is currently eluding me.
Does anyone have any ideas what technical term my customer may be searching for???
This seems to make good sense given the context and my customer's finickiness (is that a word?).
Thanks guys, I also thought history was great and suggested it to the customer as an alternative.
I have not made a glossary entry as I think a lot of things could be used here (including progress and status, despite what the customer says). 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
