Swedish term or phrase:urbläckningsbara
Working on a computer program that monitors vibrations in heavy machinery.
Here it is talking about the electrical hookup for the system:
"I skåpets baksida är ingående och utgående kanaler kopplades på
The back of the cabinet has input and output channels connected to *fadable
This seems so clumsy. Is there are better term out
Explanation: There is no such word as urbläckningsbara in Swedish. You must check with the author.
I think he/she has translated badly from a foreign langauge.
Bläck in Swedish is "ink". Bleck is tin, tin-plate but does not make sense.
It could be "utsläckningsbara" (extinguishable) which does not make much sense either.
