German term or phrase:Rasterolive
I'm translating 40,000 words about door handles and have this term "Rasterolive", which I simply cannot work out in English. It is a type of handle that runs vertically down from where it attaches to the door/window, if you search in Google Images it comes up with loads of them.
One EN site I found suggested "thumb turn", but that doesn't seem quite right. Another site suggested "balcony door handle", which I have obviously ruled out as it is both far too specific and too general (yes it's a door handle, but not necessarily for balconies alone).
This is due back to the client by tomorrow so any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks, Jeux de Mots - that's exactly what I was looking for and the examples you gave bear that out. I asked the client and they didn't know, so I have used "espagnolette window handles" throughout my text. 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
