German term or phrase: Leitstand
Hey there,

I am using SDL Web Lookup, which despite unfortunately only being a 7, rather than an 8, has enabled me to see that Linguee does know how to translate this word ...

So?

Well,... you people might wish to have a look for yourselves:

DE:
Ein Anwender gilt als angemeldet, wenn er sich mindestens einmal im Kalendermonat gegenüber dem ***Leitstand*** per E-Mail-Adresse und Passwort oder gegenüber der App mit seiner PIN identifiziert hat.
[...]
Die Anmeldung kann entweder über die App per PIN oder über den ***Leitstand*** per E-Mail-Adresse und Passwort erfolgen.

Der Preis für die Nutzung des Services beträgt X0,00 € (netto zzgl. der gesetzlichen Umsatzsteuer) pro Kalendermonat und Anwender, die im Kalendermonat angemeldet waren.

As we are talking business management solutions, possibly manufacturing-related or harvesting-related software this might indeed mean control room or control center -- but, if so, what sense would it make then to log in to it with your email and password, viz. to such control room/center?

Any votes for Dashboard?

Any other takes?

Cheers,

Sebastian Witte

agree  Michael Martin, MA: Siemens and this dictionary call it "control center":https://books.google.com/books?id=4DwFBgAAQBAJ&pg=PA859&lpg=...

agree  EdithK: of course. and non-Pro IMO

agree  Marcus Malabad: room/console appropriate only for engineering contexts (a power station for example). 'dashboard' or 'control board' = logging into apps, or even 'x' center (where x is the purpose of the software, like 'Game Center' in iOS). This is a Pro question
