German to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering - Engineering (general) / technical department in an hotel
German term or phrase:Maschinencouverts
Gesamte Administration fuer den Technikbereich mit Maschinenkarten und Maschinencouverts.
From an employment reference for someone who was in charge of a hotel's technical department in the 1980s.
The agency in Germany couldn't find an answer either and the translation has been delivered and submitted to the end customer, with "Maschinencouverts" left open, for his explanation. I found "machine cards" for "Maschinenkarten"; it looks like you could be on the money with your suggestion of envelopes, Cilian, so thanks for that.
