German term or phrase: Verbinder
In Visio gibt es mehrere unterschiedliche Shape-Arten:

1.Zweidimensionale Shapes: diese können einen offenen oder geschlossenen Umriss besitzen

2.Eindimensionale Shapes: z.B. jeder ***Verbinder***. Diese sind im Prinzip eine Linie mit zwei Enden (können aber komplexe Strukturen wie einen Pfeil abbilden)

3.Gruppen: ein Shape, welches selbst wieder Shapes enthält

4.Importierte Grafiken: eine spezielle Art der Kapselung von programmfremden Grafiken (JPG; BMP etc.)

5.Hilfslinien und Hilfspunkte: diese sind keine Shapes im eigentlichen Sinne, sie dienen der Unterstützung beim Zeichnen. Technisch sind die aber ebenfalls vollwertige Shapes

Connector
Explanation:
I think it is the obvious-sounding "Connector". I.e. a straight line for connecting the different shapes (each shape represents different processes, decisions, documents, subprocesses, etc. of a flowchart in Visio)

Example sentence(s):
  • The majority of flowcharts rely on just a few of the process-related symbols to do all the heavy lifting: Start/End, Process, Decision, Document, and Connector.
  • Visio makes it easy to connect shapes in your drawing. You can use AutoConnect to connect shapes as you add them, and you can connect existing shapes by using the Connector tool.
