English term or phrase: Memory leaks
It's about working with software. One example is 'to track down memory leaks'.

Thank you for any help.

Danish translation:lagertab
Explanation:
This has to do with computers apparently and therefore the correct word for memory is lager. The word hukommelse is rarely used in PCs or EDB. I therefore believe the correct word here is lagertab.

Thank you very much for the answer. After having seen all the responses and having contacted other people, I chose the term 'memory-tab'. But lets see when my customer gives his feedback! Best regards from Anette

hukommelseslækager


Explanation:
ordet kan ikke direkte findes, men memory betyder "hukommelse" og leaks betyder "lækager" /"tab", så jeg vil tro at oversættelsen skal være noget i denne retning: "at finde hukommelseslækager"

  -> Du har ret i at "lager" også bruges, men lige så ofte "hukommelse". Se i L&H Computerordbog, Eng-Dansk.

lagerafladning


Explanation:
do not forget that 'memory' can also mean'lager' and 'leak' can mean 'afladning' when talking electricity, so may I suggest 'lagerafladning', thereby avoiding the 'human' 'hukommelsestab'.

  -> yes it does, but in general technical terms for PC maintenance and PC construction, the word "lager" is used for memory

Lagerlækager


Explanation:
Memory når det handler om computere er "Lager".
Leaks når det handler om computere er "Lækager"
Sæt de 2 ord sammen og du har den korrekte betegnelse "Lagerlækager"
