Law/Patents - Patents
German term or phrase: vorteilhaft
Can anyone help with some translation options for the word "vorteilhaft" as used in German patent language. I am wearing out the word "advantageous" and wonder if any of you patent gurus have alternatives that will work.

Also "Oberbegriff" is the term superordinate concept or preamble the preferred EN translation?

English translation:favorable, profitable
Explanation:
My "Wörterbuch der Patent- und Markenpraxis" (Uexküll/Reich) also gives me the above terms in addition to "advantageous".

Depending on the context, I might translate "Überbegriff" as "generic term". However, this is just my intuition, I couldn't find anything on this in any of my dictionaries.
