Rotary transmission systems
Slip ring transmitters are electromechanical components, which are used for the transmission of current, signals, data and media such as water, air or gases from a stationary to a rotary part - for all applications, in which revolutions of more than 360° are exposed to cable carriers to high loads demanded or for example.
Yes, NIGHTMARE. It's really difficult and time consuming to understand the Denglish text, especially at the beginning of this project. But fortunately, at last I can understand most of his/her OWN terminology such "achievement", "river"... haha... In fact, I had reported this situation to my client, they just asked me to try my best... :-)
I just finished a project that has crappy source text too. Was a total nightmare! I had to leave comments and questions everywhere in the document. I explained the situation to the client, and she was nice about it. I think your client understand too.
Still working on that Denglish text? Does your client know that this English text is written by a German (who probably slept through his English classes in school)? You might like to tell the client that this sentence simply does not make sense.
Explanation: Slip ring transmitters are electromechanical components that are employed to transmit electric power of any kind from a stationary to a rotating part. In short, a slip ring or slip ring transmitter is used wherever a rotary movement of more than 360° takes place and current is required by a consumer.
