Explanation:
Whilst I cannot pretend to translate your term, I have found one or two sites which use the term in an appropriate context which will probably set you on the right track - see refs below.

Until the first quarter of 1999, it seems to have been soimething which was essentially applicable to the UNIX and mainframe worlds, not applicable to WINDOWS. That changed in the beginning of 1999 :

See www.basis.com/advantage/mag-v3n1/21thinclientarch.html

Further, the comapny SAAB seems to have seduced by this internet infrastructure for business-critical applications as it helps to increase production and reduce costs, making for happier clients. It allows access to legacy applications via a web browser.
