linker files or linkage editor files
Explanation:
Looking at your question, I'm confused - linker files is already in English, and you are giving German as the source language?

(If I were to translate linker files into German, I'd use Linker-Dateien).

Linker is short for Linkage Editor; it's sometimes translated as Binder in German, but Linker is the more common term.

Linker, der; Subst. (linkage editor, linker)
Ein Programm, das kompilierte Module und Datendateien miteinander verknüpft, um ein ausführbares Programm zu erzeugen. Daneben kann ein Linker noch weitere Aufgaben ausführen, beispielsweise das Erstellen von Bibliotheken.
[Microsoft Computer-Lexikon]

Brinkmann, Daten- und Kommunikationstechnik Englisch-Deutsch :
linker (OS)(s. linkage editor)
linkage editor (i.e., a program used to create a load module from one or more independently translated object modules or load modules by resolving cross-references among the object modules, and possibly by relocating elements) (OS) / Binder m , Binderprogramm n

Anyway, hope this helps...

Streckendateien / Verbunddateien


Explanation:
<uel> is right about her question with regard to language.
Assuming that the target is German, then answer depends on the context. If it is switching technology, then the classical translation would be "Streckendateien". If it is networking, then the classical answer would be "Verbunddatei". uel's suggestion is a more modern variant, that would be used more in Internet and OLE environments.
