German term or phrase: Korrekturlesen Typbegleiter
This appears in a document on correct documentation processes in a car manufacturing company. One of the stages in the approval process is obviously a review of the document by the "Typbegleiter." I have no context beyond that.

Anyone happen to know what this job title translates to in US English?
