I can't specify it better without sending the article. I will have to create my own solution with a phrase in conference with the author. Your suggestion is simply uninformed. Thanks very much for trying. Sorry to have bothered you.

Explanation: @Edward, to me, it is always disappointing if one cannot find an approach to a suitable translation ...
But surely there is no need to send a complete article on the subject - however, providing more than just a single technical term is IMO always possible without revealing too much information.
See e.g. this dental question: http://www.proz.com/kudoz/970968
The term in the context of the original German sentence, that would allow a contribution which would be more than just guesswork. :-)
A Happy New Year 2006 from Germany!
