 German term or phrase: aus dem in den zwei Ebenen... Bei runden Substraten ist die Messung in zwei zueinander senkrechten Ebenen durchzuführen, bei symmetrisch ovalen Querschnitten in den zwei Symmetrieebenen. ***Aus den in den zwei Ebenen A und B ermittelten Abweichungen ist das geometrische Mittel als Gesamtabweichnung zu bilden:*** My feeble attempt at the second sentence is: From the deviations determined by the two planes A and B, the geometrical average/mean*** constitutes the total deviation: But that doesn't make sense to me. Can anyone help, please. Many thanks in advance! Sheila

Explanation:

The geometrical mean is to be formed as the overall deviation from the deviations measured in the two planes A & B.

Or

The two deviations measured in the two planes A & B must be/are used to determine the geometrical mean in the form of an overall deviation ..

At least, that's what I think it says!

Sentence option:

Explanation:
Measurement with round substrata is to be executed on two vertically opposing plains, with symmetrically oval cross sections in those two planesymmetries. Total diviation is to be derived at by geometric means, of those determined deviations between plain A and B.
