German term or phrase:Autokohle
Another question from non-coal producing Wisconsin. What is Autokohle? I can't even find it on the web. It seems to be coal that has gone through some processing of some kind.
Explanation: GENERAL NOTE ABOUT HELPFUL CONTEXT :-) --- Whenever possible, it helps your “would-be helpers” to see (A) all or most of the RELEVANT SENTENCE or short passage and (B) the GENERAL CONTEXT (e.g., plumbing vs. electrical wiring). (C) Take care, of course, not to reveal PROPRIETARY / CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION in this information, e.g. by neutering names etc. --- (D) Sometimes it also helps to know the GEOGRAPHY (source &/or target country), (E) TARGET AUDIENCE (e.g., radiologist vs. medical physicist), and/or (F) the PURPOSE of the communication (informational vs. motivational, humor or satire etc.)
