German to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering
German term or phrase:Trowalisierung and Schlagschere
These terms appear in a text on tool manufacturing and the machines used to manufacture these tools.
Explanation: 'Trowalisiering' sounds like a bastard German form of bad English. I assume it means something like 'making into the form of a trowel'. A non-specific translation would be 'forging', plus a bit of explanation if approriate.
Schlagschere = 'gate shears', from the Cornelson Techniches Wörterbuch Machinebau/Anlegetechnik/Umwelt
