German to English translations [PRO] Marketing - Furniture / Household Appliances
German term or phrase:Die Markenkennzeichnung belegt neutrale Prüfungen
This is from a marketing piece about furniture. It says "Unsere Moebel entspricht allen deutschen und europaischen Richtlinien. Die Markenkennzeichnung belegt neutrale Prüfungen mit Modellnamen und nachhaltiger Kontrollnummer."
I really am not sure what the second sentence means. My guess is that is to do with the QA process and that pieces of furniture are submitted for testing anonymously, without the brand name attached? I am really guessing though, and any help would be much appreciated!
Hilary, I could agree with your guess if neutral tests could be the subject of the sentence, but then it would have to be "belegen". Therefore, it must be "The trademark sign documents neutral tests...." However, it is a strange sentence.
