German term or phrase:die sich die diese - I think I'm going mad....
Sorry to have to ask this simple question, but I've been working on these horrendous tender documents all week and I think I'm going round the bend. I can't sort out the die sich die diese in this sentence to work out what refers to what....
"Die Verpflichtung des Garanten erlöschen mit Annahmen der Blahdiblahs durch den Auftraggeber, auf die sich die diese Guarantie sichernde Anzahlung bezieht."
This is from a guarantee for partial advance payments.
The points go to Terry - because she translated the sentence for me and made my life just a little bit easier. However I greatly appreciated the other answers for sorting out the bits of the sentence for me and untying my confused mind. 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
