English term or phrase: Repair Service Technician
We would like to know the German words for these three words. Is the word "computer" the same?
Jay
Wartungstechniker
Explanation:
I think that is the best term.
Repairman = "Reparaturschlosser" ( according to Ernst, Wörterbuch der industriellen Technik). "Schlosser" is a mechanic, which need not be a higher level of technical skill. And this term misses the "service" aspect of your question.
Wartung = maintenance, which does include repairs.

However, it could also mean:

"Stoerungsdienst"

Depends on the context

Explanation:
Erinnere mich düster an ein Gespräch mit jemandem bei Freunden in London, der im Auftrag von Bosch Waschmaschinen und dgl. reparierte, und wenn ich nicht irre, dann war genau das seine Berufsbezeichnung.
