German to English translations [PRO] Religion / interreligious dialogue
German term or phrase:Islambeauftragter
Der Islambeauftragte des evangelischen Kirchenkreises X-Stadt
(so weit die Kurzversion; offizieller Titel: Der Synodalbeauftragte des evangelischen Kirchenkreises X-Stadt für den christlich-islamischen Dialog)
Da die Islambeauftragten nur nebenher und ehrenamtlich arbeiten, scheint mir diese Version am ehesten zutreffend.
Vielen Dank an alle für die anregenden Vorschläge!!! 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
Except for "XY ist Synodalbeauftrager des Kirchenkreises für den christlich-islamischen Dialog. Zu den wichtigsten Arbeitsfeldern des Islambeauftragten gehören etc. etc.", there is no further context, and the readership are the visitors of the Kirchenkreis-website.
No, the stuff in brackets is the official title. Perhaps I should explain what a Kirchenkreis is. In Germany, the level structure is parish-Kirchenkreis-Landeskirche, the latter being a kind of diocese. A Kirchenkreis is a district covering up to ca. 20 parishes in a (part of a) town or region, depending on the protestant part of the population. Most Islambeauftragte are priests doing this job voluntarily in addition to their parish jobs.

Perhaps too much but I couldn't find decent refs regarding "Muslim issues"
