German term or phrase: Weltformat
This is referring to the size of a poster. Unfortunately, I think I could be out of luck, as I found this on a website:
"Weltformat not only specifies a paper format ( 90 x 128 cm, used exclusively in Switzerland ) but also means world class.". If it really is only used in Switzerland, there won't be a translation for this term. I don't think that "world format" is correct. I may have to just give the dimensions.
