German term or phrase: aufnahme in die Maschine
Again in the context of part of a stenograpy and phonotyping exam "Aufnahme einer 3-Minuten-Ansage in die Maschine in der Geschwindigkeit von 60 Silben pro Minute". Can anyone suggest a trans for this whole sentence? Is it recording? But no, maybe simply typing? Thanks.....

Explanation:
Sounds like a test of the rate with which the person can transcribe dictation. Duration of the dictation is 3 minutes, and the speed is 60 syllables/minute.

recording


Explanation:
Aufnahme=introducing, recording, incorporation and many more
recording of a 3-minute announcement into the device with a speed of 60 sillibles/minute.
I would think that recording is the most appropriate here, because you generally don't speek of "typing an announcement" etc.
Hope this helps,
Lis

Explanation:
I agree with Parrot and UEL, and James can probably figure this out without any help, but this is bugging me:
WORDS per minute (wpm) - syllables per minute might sound a bit funny to English speakers unfamiliar with big German compound words.

(It may be unusual to type from speech (phonotyping?), but this is a common typing speed - 60 syllables/words per minute is much too slow for stenography or recording, or for normal human speech which is about 300)
