German term or phrase: all forms of 'Ehre'
The person who I am writing about, a successful German businessman, has been honoured many times.
Ehrensenator der Universität Heidelberg: what is a Senator in the university context? Senator only sounds right in a political context to me.
Träger des Bundesverdienstkreuzes am Bande: I think the first part is roughly equivalent to OBE but what about 'am Bande'?
Träger des Bundesverdienstordens Erster Klasse: anyone know what this translates as? How is it different from the one above it?

English translation:Honorary Councillor of the University of Heidelberg.
Explanation:
"Ehren" before a title is generally the equivalent of the english "honorary".
"Senat" in the university context is a court or council. Here are a couple of suggestions, although there could be other variations:
Honorary Councillor of the University of Heidelberg.
Holder of the Federal Order of Merit Cross on the Ribbon.
Holder of the Federal Service Medal First Class.
