|English to German translations [Non-PRO]|
|English term or phrase: people from non-English speaking backgrounds (NESB)|
|This term is widespread in Australian, especially when it comes to Government jargon. However, I am having trouble thinking of the German equivalent.

Looking forward to your suggestions,
