German term or phrase: Duplex
One final question for the night/morning. Does the German "Duplex" as in "Duplexumsetzung" refer to duotone and, if so, how would one render the "Umsetzung"? Is it duotone imaging, duotone printing?
Context: "Duplexumsetzung von Bildern: eine kostengünstige Gestaltungsvariante."
