German term or phrase:Zug-Spindel-Drehmaschine
I know that Spindel-Drehmaschine is translated with "sliding lathe", but how about the "Zug-", do I translate this with "traction", "hauling" or "pulling". Professionals and native speakers please help. I cannot give any context. This is one glossary in alphabetical order of approx. 45,000 without any context!
To answer your question John, NO! The excel files comprehend 4 separate excel files, and I was asked to start with "K". I just passed 3,000 glossaries, so there are 42,000 more to go. Lots of chances to collect "Kudoz Points" for all my colleagues. I am thrilled about the support and assistance, I couldn't do without it!
Explanation: I have found a translation for "Zugspindel" which is "drawing spindle" and I do believe there may be such a thing as a "drawing spindle lathe" but cannot substantiate this, hence my low confidence level.
