For those of us who work on foreign cars as a hobby,
Robert Bentley is THE definitive manual for most models.
Since the cars mentioned are German and the original
instructions and data would be in that language, this
job would include translation into English and preparing
manuals and training materials. Exactly what I would
expect as job requirements for this task. Anything less
would produce an inferior manual, of which I've seen many and have paid dearly for their misteaks.
