German to English translations [PRO]
Tech/Engineering - Engineering: Industrial
German term or phrase: Spiegelung
Specific context = Bei Eigenprüfung Nachweis der Spiegelung an der gesamten Norm
Overall context = Quality assurance checklist for manufacture of medical equipment
My main problem with this sentence is "Spiegelung" but I'm not fully sure how to get around the "Eigenprüfung" bit either... (proprietary inspection??).
Any help at all would be much appreciated!

English translation:Compliance
Explanation:
"Verification of compliance to the entire standard by in-house testing."

Or perhaps "internal testing".

Another way to deal with \"Spiegelung\" might be to use the word \"reflects\", e.g. \"Verification that (the product) reflects the requirements of the entire standard....\" But I prefer \"compliance\"!

agree  gangels: When testing in-house, proof of compliance with the entire norm is mandatory

  -> In US English "Norm" is translated as "Standard"; maybe not in Britisch English?
