German term or phrase:kompakte Technik
This is a crane manufacturer claiming that his mobile cranes are "perfect for world champions". The article starts:
"Fußball und Krangeschäft haben in Italien eins gemeinsam: gefordert ist kompakte Technik."
The reference to cranes is obvious - the company manufactures cranes designed for use in cramped environments - but what is "kompakte Technik" in a football context and how can one translate the term so that it applies to both football and cranes?
