Bus/Financial
Danish term or phrase: Telefonsluse
My Swedish dictionary, Gullberg, has this as phone-in or call-in program, however, it does not really fit the bill, as the term does not contain the word program at all.

Explanation:
I am a native Danish speaker living in Denmark, so I asked TDC Teledanmark, who recommend the two terms stated above.

I hope this is helpful.

Explanation:
sluse is given as " lock, sluice" in Kunnskapsforlagets Blå ordbok. Decide for yourself. The context suggests "telephone lock" - although this wouldn't be a normal use of sluse, plus lås means lock in Norwegian-Danish. Question - does that fit the context of your phrase?

Telephone screening (?)


Explanation:
Could it be that we are talking about the process of screening phone calls to a radio or TVprogram? In that case, one might envision the Producer "sluicing" callers through to the Program, not?

Take this with a huge grain of salt, though, I've never heard it used like this, but the two other translstions given here don't make too much sense either, so... :-)
Good luck, anyway!
