neutral  Lancashireman: I’ve had a few texts recently about machinery that had 'zentren' as suffix and have cheerfully translated them as ‘centres’ (or even ‘centers’ by special request). But aren’t these really places to go shopping in?// Thanks. Will stick with 'centres' then.

  -> Stations might be better. But the idea behind "center", I believe, is that several operations can be carried out in one place as opposed to going to several different machines to get the job done.
