German term or phrase: classische Steuerung
Can the term "Classisch" also be translated as "straight forward" in this context?

"Da es sich bei der Aufgabenstellung um eine klassische Statemaschine handelt, haben wir natürlich die Software nicht klassisch per Hand geschrieben, sondern ein UML-Tool verwendet, das eben genau auf Statecharts spezialisiert ist - IAR visualSTATE."

standard
Explanation:
I prefer the term standard, as klassisch doesn not necessarily imply straight forward, and I try to shy away from making my own implications in translations. In this context, classic seems to emphasize something that has been in place for a while, thus become a standard (at least de facto).

Cheerio,
Dierk

classical control


Explanation:

classisch ( klassisch) = classical, or straight (as in straight pressing)

In this context you might want to translate it with "classical" meaning the regular/normal way.

Good luck
