German to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering - Mechanics / Mech Engineering / Standards used in the industry
German term or phrase:abgelöste DIN
The text contains tables giving technical data of things like washers, screws, nuts among others. The expression "abgelöste DIN 125" (or DIN 440, 990 etc) right in the beginning of each table. What could abgelöst in THIS CONTEXT imply?
Hello all, The words superseded, replaced, relieved etc were all known to me. However as Jim correctly says these words sound funny when used in this context, which is precisely why I asked this question. Thanks for your invaluable copntributions though! !
