German to English translations [Non-PRO] Tech/Engineering
German term or phrase:geschw antr.
As a forklift examiner i have one truck which the menu is in german and im trying to set it up for first time users
**(0>9) are the adjustable settings. and as some are i presume abreviations no other translator could help
Explanation: geschw. probably is an abbreviation for "Geschwindigkeit(s)" and "Qntrieb" = drive.
Especially since "langsam antr(ieb) indicates a slow setting.
It seems there are two drive positions (Slow and High-speed).
Explanation: I assume the abbreviation to stand for "geschwind antreiben" which of course is not entirely elegant German. It might more sense as "Schnellantrieb". Also, the issue is a bit confusing because you are not using caps which, I am sure, would be helpful to decide between nouns and verbs
