German term or phrase: 80-er Raster
The following are customer questions regarding the term "80-er Raster". I have not seen the actual text and thus can offer no sentence context.

In einem deutschen Text über Papiere ist die Rede von einem "80er-Raster".
1. Ist die korrekte Übersetzung davon "80 lpi raster width", "80 lpi screen width" oder geht beides?
2. Entspricht ein deutsches 80er-Raster einem englischen/amerikanischen 80er-Raster oder muss der Wert "80" umgerechnet werden?
3. Gibt Unterschiede zwischen US und UK-English?

Is anyone able to offer a qualified answer??

Many thanks,
Rebecca

Explanation:
This is about Rasterweite, I presume. The German Rasterweite is expressed in lines per centimeter (1). In English, halftone frequency is given in lines per inch (2), hence you need to convert the value:
200 lpi = ca. 80 Linien/cm
