I was searching for the meaning of Lernfeldübergreifende or Lernfeldübergreifende Fachgebiet but I didn’t find any reliable translation.

  • Hi and welcome to German Language Stack Exchange. Feel free to take a tour of the site and visit the [ħelp] for any questions about it that may remain. Your question is dangerously close to a simple translation request which would be discouraged on this site. I’m not sure if it will get closed, just saying it may. You may want to add further research you did just in case.

lernen (Verb) = to learn
Feld (Substantiv) = field, area, orbit, ...

this gives:
Lernfeld (Substantiv) = learning orbit, area of learning, but very often just lernfeld (as german loanword)

übergreifen, übergreifend

über (Präposition) = over
greifen (Verb) = to grab
greifend (Adjektiv oder Verb, Partizip Präsens) = grabbing

übergreifen (Verb) = literally to grab over, but in fact means to overlap
übergreifend (Adjektiv oder Verb, PP) = overlapping, across, overall, comprehensive


lernfeldübergreifend (Adjektiv o.V.PP) = lapping over learning orbits, going across areas of learning


Fach (Substantiv) has many meanings. Here: subject (of education)
Gebiet (Substantiv) = area, reagion

Fachgebiet (Substantiv) is just a synonym of Fach, so Fachgebiet = subject (of education)

all together

lernfeldübergreifendes Fachgebiet = A subject of education that overlaps some learning orbits.

I guess you can say it shorter:

A comprehensive subject.


Given the academic context, I'd translate it as

Interdisciplinary subject


Lernfeldübergreifende Fachgebiet means, it is a subject which includes an overall learning field

  • Yeah, Id say so. My bad. Hey, sorry if some thing stay unclear. Im did my best to help translate it. :/
