Tech/Engineering - Engineering (general)
German term or phrase: galvanischer Oberflächenschutz

"Bei Bauteilen, die noch keinen galvanischen Oberflächenschutz haben, ist folgendes zu berücksichtigen:"

As this isn't really my area of expertise, I'm not certain whether "electroplated" or "galvanically coated" is better here. I have a feeling that electroplated is actually more correct, though a less literal translation, but maybe it doesn't cover all the bases, or perhaps it is too general?

* Sentence or paragraph where the term occurs: See above
* Document type: Manufacturing instructions
* Target audience: Aerospace engineers
* Country and dialect: Germany (possibly south German dialect, probably none)

galvanised surface protection

or: galvanized surface protection.

A literal translation would be fine here, IMO.

Example sentence(s):
  • The cylindrical shapes and <b>galvanised surface protection</b> ensure longevity through self- cleansing.
  • They are tailored specifically for PNG’s demographic and geographic environment – for example, modern painting is used rather than the older <b>galvanized surface protection</b> for greater longevity and maintenance free operation.

neutral  meirs: I'd rather go for "galvanic" = the purpose of the protection - rather than "galvanized" = the method (Zinc coating) - you may want to check
