German translation:Traktions-Wechselrichtermodul
Explanation:
It is always a problem with new technologies and the phantasy of producers in naming parts and products.

I guess this is what you came up with yourself :-)

Ford (THINK) writes:
In a direct hydrogen fuel cell vehicle, hydrogen from the fuel tank is supplied to the fuel cells, where it combines with oxygen supplied by the air compressor. An electrode coated with a catalyst splits the hydrogen into electrons and protons. The movement of the electrons generates electricity, which is sent to the traction inverter
module. The traction inverter module converts the electricity for use by
the motor/transaxle, which transforms the electric energy into the
mechanical energy that turns the wheels. The only byproducts of this
process are water and heat."
