German to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering - Computers: Software / software
German term or phrase:Installationen/Installationssorte
I know about installing a software program, but these concepts are foreign to me. To use an installation? Installations?
a. Installationen der Lizenzprodukte SISTO/builder, SISTO/editor, SISTO/infocenter, SISTO/web und SISTO/webmanager darf der Lizenznehmer auf der vorhandenen Datenverarbeitungsanlagen für sein gesamtes Unternehmen im Land des Lieferortes nutzen.
b. Installationen der Lizenzprodukte SISTO/editor, SISTO/infocenter, dürfen auch auf Datenverarbeitungsanlagen von an Dritten übertragende Nutzungs-rechte verwendet werden.
Thanks Marcus, Michael and Ulrike. The first problem was reading Sorte instead of Orte. Then what was new to me was the concept of *using* an application installation instead of using the application. 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
Explanation: The desired kind of software installation, i.e., full or partial, probably. Since there's a plural/singular adjective combination, the user can apparently choose more than one kind of installation.
Kim, I never thought I'd see your name in the "Asker" column. Hope this helps.
Explanation: This won't fit into the comments next to an agree or neutral, so it'll have to be a separate answer.
Marcus is half right with this answer - software is first installed, then set up (to the user's specifications and/or needs). Usually, though, the user him/herself does not see the difference between installation and setup as everything takes place in one process (the choices you might make during installation constitute the actual setup).
I've done a lot of localization work for software installation products, and the English originals always refer to "installation".
pertinent professional experience, lots of it
