handseite - sattelseite

Post by jbaum » 11 Jun 2019 16:24

I'm translating the German field kitchen manual, and the terms "handseite" and "sattelseite" are regularly used.

Since I want this to be as correctly translated as possible, could someone clarify these terms for me? Do they translate directly into right and left, or is there more to it than that?

Thanks in advance,

John

Hi John,

I don't understand these words. Can you post one of those sentences, where these terms are used?

19. An der handseite des Vorderwagens befindet sich die vom Bocksitz aus zu bedienende Bremskurbel.

29. Der Kaffeekessel ist auf der Sattelseite des Hinterwagens neben de Speisenkessel angebracht.

John,

I asked someone, who has an own horse. These are expressions from equitation:
When two horses are pulling a cart in a team, the left horse carries a saddle. The other horse rides on the right side as "Handpferd". The carriage then ist manouvered riding the left horse and not from the cart.

So "Sattelseite" then means left side,
"Handseite" means right side.

Here are some pictures from my collection. You may find some details for your manual. If you need more, send me a pm.

Excellent! It is important to me that I translate these manuals as accurately as possible, and sometimes the dictionaries are not sufficient.
Thank you for your help. John.

John,
You can translate 29 for example:

The coffee kettle is located on the left side of the rear cart next to the food kettle.

Or you use "Sattelseite". I am sure, there are expressions in English for "Sattelseite" and "Handseite" as well. Ask someone who rides.

I have two horses myself, but I don't use them to pull a wagon, and we don't use the terms saddleside and handside. I wanted to be sure that my left and right translation was correct, and you have provided that.
Best regards,
John
