German to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering / Printing / finishing of printed material
German term or phrase:Verarbeitungsbreite
Still the printing/paper finishing job, same sentence as previous question...
(Technical do's and dont's for a laminating machine (Kaschieranlage))
The whole sentence is:
"Einzuplanen ist eine Verarbeitungsbreite von 1 cm ringsum sowie ein Zuschuss von 3 bis 5 Prozent."
Thanks for your suggestion, Kathi. Not sure about processing width, though. I think the term Verarbeitungsbreite might not be really accurate in German, either. To me, Verarbeitungsbreite - and your suggested translation "processing width" - suggests the entire width of the material that can be processed, while here, they are talking about the margin that is needed for processing. What do you think about "processing margin"?
