German to English translations [PRO] Bus/Financial - Economics
German term or phrase:Erfassungsstelle (VEAB-)
For experts on GDR terminology:
I came across a "VEAB-Erfassungsstelle" recently (a GDR relic in the form of a grubby building in Neuwegersleben, a small village west of Oschersleben (Bode)).
I'd be interested to know what exactly an "Erfassungsstelle" is (something to do with recording of units of agricultural production perhaps?), as well as the meaning of the abbreviation VEAB (volkseigener Aussenbetrieb?).
