German to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering / All-Ceramic Dental Materials
German term or phrase:Bereich (here)
"Andere Anwendungsbeispiele für Glaskeramiken sind zum Beispiel Teleskopspiegel, die aufgrund eines einstellbaren WAK von ≈ 0 ppm bei Temperaturschwankungen keine Veränderung der Brennweite aufweisen oder auch Substrate im Bereich elektronischer Bauelemente".
This is discussing a variety of all-ceramic materials used in dentistry.
I can't work out what "Bereich" means here. Is it area (or perhaps vicinity) or range? TIA for helping me clear this up. Incidentally, WAK means CTE (coefficient of thermal expansion), and Brennweite, I have discovered, is "focal length".
Thank you very much for that! Thanks to Gillian for a helpful comment also. I wholeheartedly agree with what Gillian says - and the writer of my text seems to have a "Bereich" fetish. It's Bereich this, Bereich that and Bereich the next thing. Most of the time I'm actually not bothering to translate it (e.g. for "Dentalbereich" I just say "dentistry"), but here I couldn't quite work out the meaning. So thank you very much for clarifying it. It all makes sense now! Appreciate your help. 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
The word "Bereich" can have several different translations, and it's not totally clear to me which one is right. Therefore, could you please elucidate on why you are convinced that "area" is the way to go here?
