I'm German myself and I'm having trouble with finding an adequate translation.
The English title reads "Towards a Geometric Theory of Exact Dimensional Reduction". What would be the best translation?
To me it seems that the word 'towards' expresses that some work is done in a particular direction, but the holy grail has yet to be accomplished. Efforts have been made, and the foundations have been laid out, but the details have not been fully worked out yet.
