Tech/Engineering / Birth certificate
German term or phrase: Bandweber
In a German birth certificate, the father of the child is listed as having the profession of 'Bandweber'. According to Langenscheidts Fachwörterbuch Technik und angweandte Wissenschaften, 'Bandweberei' is 'narrow-fabric weaving; ribbon weaving'. Can it be concluded that the father is a 'fabric weaver'? I'm rather hesitant to say so and would appreciate feedback. TIA.Turn social sharing on.
