English translation:SI
Explanation:
SI stands for systeme international, in other words international standard system of units. THus, SI should remain SI. Otherwise Kontakt is contact or a contact piece, Schalter is switch and Automat is probably a mini circuit breaker or automatic device/unit.

Good luck!!
