German term or phrase:'vorgängig' and 'VR'
Dem Management von Mary wurde von ihrem VR die Auflage gemacht, vorgängig zum öffentlichen Kaufangebot den Weiterverkauf des Orthopädiegeschäftes verbindlich zu regeln.
Explanation: Unfortunately (or fortunately, I am not from Switzerland, and, as you might have forgotten, hardly will you manage to find a "Duden" in Kazakhstan. Anyway, in my eyes "vorgängig" is no decent German. Nevertheless, I was right with my guess, isn't it? I did not "lecture anyone but expressed my point of view. That's it. If it was based on not being aware of "Schwitzderduetsch", no problem to accept criticism. "Prior to", of course, sounds better, no doubt."
