German to English translations [PRO] Bus/Financial - Business/Commerce (general) / business consulting
German term or phrase:Fachberatung
Any ideas on how best to translate "Fachberatung"?
This comes up in a text on systemic organisational consulting in a section differentiating between "Prozessberatung" (here process consulting) and "Fachberatung".
Prozessberatung zielt auf Steuerung von Kommunikations- und Interaktionsprozessen in und zwischen Organisationen, Fachberatung hingegen auf Optimierung von standardisierten Geschäftsprozessen.
Any help would be very much appreciated.
Expert or specialist consulting was one of my first thoughts, but I didn't want to imply that "Process consulting" was not "expert" (since that is the focus of the article). Process consulting is the term I have been asked to use for Prozessberatung, since in this case "process" is used to refer to anything connected to human communication processes. Other options I am considering are business process consulting and communication process consulting. Maybe this will help the discussion!

Explanation: ...is a straightforward translation that seems to fit the description provided by the context, i.e. the technical tweaking (optimization) of standardized business processes.
Hope that helps!

Explanation: I've based my suggestions more on your descriptions, than on the words themselves.
