German term or phrase: Es emphielt sich
Satz:

Es emphielt sich die Pufferbatterie beim nicht benutzen des Standes zu deaktivieren.
Pamela Bradley
English translation:answer
Explanation:
seems like a typo: it should be 'es empfehlt sich' - 'it is recommended'. If this comes from a manual, I suggest chucking the passive construction and go for: "we recommend..." or even "Deactivate the buffer baterrie when not is use" (imperative construction)
