German to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering - Furniture / Household Appliances / Mattresses
German term or phrase:Stegboden
"Stegboden mit 2-seitigem Reißverschluss , abnehmbar."
From a text about mattresses. There's not really any more context for this word, except that it's part of a Bezug (which I think is a mattress cover). I have no idea whatsoever what a Stegboden is, and can't find a translation for it anywhere. The Yahoo search engine hadn't even heard of the word! Google at least coughed up 439 hits, but nothing helpful insofar as a translation goes. TIA for your assistance, and Happy New Year.
Unfortunately, I have to deliver the job now. However, I have left Stegboden untranslated. The agency will just have to come up with something themselves. It's completely and utterly beyond me. I just haven't got a clue what it means, and clearly, no one here does either. Oh well, it was worth a shot ...
What would REALLY help me is for someone to suggest a translation. Part of the problem is that Steg means so many different things, and I haven't got the slightest idea how it's translated in a mattress context. Let alone StegBODEN.
