Dutch term or phrase: zwaartepunt
As mentioned earlier today I'm currently translating lists of economic activities (standaard bedrijfsindeling)

eg.

http://www.cbs.nl/nl-NL/menu/methoden/classificaties/overzic...
http://unstats.un.org/unsd/cr/registry/regcs.asp?Cl=27&Lg=1&...

One such listing is: Handelsdrukkerij (zonder zwaartepunt)

I can't work out what zwaartepunt means here. TIA

Explanation:
Or you could just say "general". It means "focus" or "priority".

These lists are often international. Are you sure there isn't already an English version?

Notes to answerer
Asker: Hi Phil I've found many of the terms I need in existing (international) lists as you mention. Some terms aren't included in the lists I've located (EU/UN)
