German term or phrase: wie auf der Kehrseite aufgestellt sind
The complete sentence is:- Waehrend Ihrer Reisen, wonach auch Ihre Arbeit moege Sie fuehren, werden Sie immer einen Laden finden, wie sie auf der Kehrseite aufgestellt sind, der diese Erzeugnisse vorhandenhaben wird.

The product is Italian, the manual has been translated into German, and I have to translate it into (american) English.

The majority of the sentence is obvious, but I am stuck with the Kehrseite bit, I have translated it as "on the other hand", but it does not seem to gel with the rest of the paragraph.

Cheers.

English translation:as listed on the other side of the page/on the reverse
Explanation:
I agree with the previous suggestions, but from the context what is referred to may well be a list of stores. And please, if you're making this into American English, split it into at least two sentences!

You have hit the nail squarely on the head.
The next page is indeed a list of stores world-wide, but as I am working from a single-sided
photocopy of the original, the reference to the reverse side of the page was not obvious, now it is!

Explanation:
Could this be what the writer means? An illustration overleaf showing the kind of shop?

overleaf, see over, see overleaf, as described overleaf. etc


Explanation:
Kehrseite = Rueckseite

". . . as described overleaf" is a fair translation of "wie sie auf der Kehrseite aufgestellt sind".

as featured on the reverse / opposite (page)?


Explanation:
This text is awful German! Normally "Kehrseite" is the reverse, of a coin e,g. Could it be that there is a picture on the back of this page in the brochure featuring such a shop? If the original Italian was "opposto" or "contrario" it could be understandable who such a translation error happend.
Hope this helps!

as listed on the reverse side [obverse side, overleaf]


Explanation:
The whole sentence is poor, antiquated German and sounds like a translation. I am sure your English version will sound better!
