Re: oversættelse af ekvipasjemeister

Mange tak, Thiel.
Jeg har lige læst i Gyldendal på nettet :
ekvipagemester, søofficer, der i sejlskibstiden ledede udrustningen af flådens skibe på Holmen og havde opsyn med magasinerne. I tiden 1792-1856, da Holmens chef var overekvipagemester, havde han to ekvipagemestre under sig.

This definition suits two different positions(!) in British dockyards of the time - one for udrustning and one for magasinerne.

På den engelske wikipedia har jeg brugt "Master of Horse" med notat oversæt fra Gyldendal. Se http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jens_Schou_Fabricius hvis du vil læse mehr.
Tak igen
Viking

Re: oversættelse af ekvipasjemeister

Just to be certain, magasin in this context means warehouse or storage room and not necessarily a place where you store ammunition.

Re: oversættelse af ekvipasjemeister

det hjælper!!
so we have Fabricius as the "Naval Officer (Storekeeper)" - most of whose work was done by his underlings.
Mange tak
Viking

Re: oversættelse af ekvipasjemeister

It seems reasonable that he'd be doing mostly administrative work.

Re: oversættelse af ekvipasjemeister

I just had a thought (Uh oh...)
Why don't you just skip the whole master of horse thing?
After all it's only one of the possible translations and in this case I doubt it's the correct one. Instead you could use the note to explain what an Ekvipagemester does.
Alternatively you could make an article that explains it, though that might be a bit much.

Re: oversættelse af ekvipasjemeister

Thanks again, Thiel. I think "Note 2" covers our discussion here I hope the article is now about right. As always with wikipedia, other editors may have their input later. Mange tak, Viking
