German term or phrase: Projektionsfolien
Used in the context of a meeting to present something, so it seems clear that these are powerpoint slides of some description, but I can't find a confirmation anywhere - can anyone confirm what these things actually are??!!

Thanks in advance for any help,
Rich

English translation:overhead transparencies
Explanation:
An "overhead transparency" is what you place on an "overhead projector". They are produced by printing e.g. PowerPoint slides onto a transparency.

It looks to me like your "Projektionsfolie" is the Austrian or Swiss equivalent of what is generally referred to as just "Folie" or "Folien" in Germany.
