German term or phrase: auch der gegenüberliegenden Seiten versetzen
From instructions for processing and filling a new gypsum plate for protection against radiation.

Under Vorbehandlung it says:
Alle Plattenstösse zwischen Beplankungslagen und bei Wänden "auch der gegenüberliegenden Seiten versetzen".

I'm not sure what the 'auch ' refers to and whether versetzen should be translated as something like 'transfer to', 'remove to'.

English translation:also on the opposite side of a wall
Explanation:
I changed the 'source term' and 'target term' a bit, as it seems to me the joints (Plattenstösse) are to be offset (versetzen). I'm not in radiation protection, but what I can imagine is to have two or more layers of gypsum board on the inside of the walls whose joints are offset, and then also have some layers of gypsum board on the outside of these walls whose joints are also offset. Theses offset joints on the inside and outside also offset.

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Teresa Reinhardt: also refers to the other side of the wall; this is probably stick framing (gypsum board on either side of a wall made from studs)

agree  Sybille: ... even those on the opposite side....
1 hr

agree  Fred Visagie: The offset idea is probably correct as you do not want openings or joints directly opposite each other for radiation to pass through.
