German term or phrase:beschreiben
Dazu stellt das System auf dem Zellrechner ein spezielles User-Verzeichnis (Ein-/Ausleseverzeichnis) zur Verfügung, das von einem externen Rechner gelesen bzw. beschrieben werden kann.
Explanation: To do this, the system provides a specific user directory (import/export directory) on the destination computer that can be read and written to by an external computer. (or: "that an external computer can read from and write to." .. but I don't like ending sentences with a preposition..)
I'm assuming, of course, that "Zellrechner" is a typo and means "Zielrechner".
Experience and common sense
