German term or phrase: Einstellanweisungen
Moin, Moin,

in mein bahntechnische Text geht es um "Einstellanweisungen".

Wer weiss ob es ein feste Begriff in Englisch für die "Einstellanweisung" gibt, oder kann ich die "Einstellanweisungen" als "Adjustment instructions" übersetzen? Ich habe irgendwie meine Zweifel!

Setup instructions

"Einstellungen" sind "settings". Wenn ich also die "Settings" anpasse, definiere ich das "Setup" als Gesamtheit der "settings".

"Adjustment" passt irgendwie nicht ganz, glaube ich. Klingt für mich irgendwie mehr nach "Korrektur".

Grading comment
I have a suggestion from the client. Setup doesn't cover it.

agree  David Moore: Looks good enough to me...though "adjustments" would fit too

agree  Darin Fitzpatrick: Could also be "alignment," but "setup" includes it all.
