Danish term or phrase: sholdere
I have a list of terms related to electrical facilities. One of the terms has puzzled me: "køretråd-sholdere". I have never seen this "sholdere" before (in any language!!). Anybody can help?

Thank you in advance!

PS- My target language is actually Spanish, but I post the question as DA>EN because there is very few people working on DA>ES, and also it's way easier to find material for translating EN>ES... However, if you happen to speak Spanish, you are welcome to suggest a translation to that language too!

Explanation:
There's a typo here -- it should be "køretrådsholdere". See the first reference link for pairing of "køretrådsholdere" and "contact wire holders". See the second link for an English description of a contact wire holder.

I think the cause of this typo is auto-hyphenation. It will produce results like this and may not show up when a spell check is run.

Asker: Thanks. Yes, I thought about the typo possibility, but the hyphen between the words confused me. Also because the text I'm working on is quite OK in general, no typos or spelling errors :-?

Asker: You must be right. Else this makes no sense. Mange tak skal du have!
