German term or phrase: Prokura Prokura
I am translating a commercial register entry and have come across "Prokura Prokura". I know what "prokura" means on its own but haven't come across it repeated like this before. This is the full sentence:

"Mit Beschränkung auf die Zweigniederlassung Nr. 1 in 80807 München, Prokura Prokura gemeinsam mit einem persönlich haftenden Gesellschafter"

This is a heading followed by a list of names.

Any help on this appreciated.

Thanks!

Rebecca.

English translation:error in source
Explanation:
This looks like a clerical error in the source document to me. The clerk who wrote the entry (presumably on a computer these days) forgot to edit out/delete the second instance.

You wrote that "the error is repeated several times" - this is an absolutely common phenomenon due to the "joys" of "copy & paste" in electronic documents.

Thank you for your help.

I thought this would be the case, but the error is repeated several times so I thought I should check.
