full mortise hinge /butt hinge

The expression butt hinge is translated by various sources as Scharnierband.

Whether full mortise can be translated as "voll versteckt" or "verdeckt" is something I'm not too sure of. Both descriptions can be found in connection with Scharnierbände.

The only other information I found mentions "Nutscharniere" and "Halbnutscharniere" for full mortise and half mortise hinges- but from Chinese companies whose translations are to be treated with utmost care.
