Does someone know how to translate the two following technical words into German? "Seasonal-Adjustement" and "Seasonal-Differencing". For more context you might look at Zeitreihenanalyse. When dealing with time series, you can adjust or remove the seasonality to study a particular effect

Desaisonalising is done by Seasonal-Adjustment are done with dummy variable Seasonal-Differencing are done using lag differencing

    To downvoters the terms asked for are well established technical terms in mathematics - context helps but it should not be a prerequsite for asking here. No reason to downvote if we don't know anything about maths.

According to Wikipedia and Oxford dictionary, the correct translation for "seasonal-adjustment" is "Saisonbereinigung".

I am not sure about "seasonal-differencing". As stated by @jarnbjo and DeepL Translator, it seems to be "saisonale Differenzierung". I do not know much about the context, but if you explain it, I could try to find a better translation.

    The second term you are looking for is 'saisonale Differenzierung', but it should not have been difficult to find these translations in a dictionary.

  • Saisonbereinigung could mean cleaning the seasonality i think, or deseasonalising which are done by both methods. I found also Saisonal-Differenzbildung for differencing. I am looking for now for Adjustment

    @Neon67: the correct German term for seasonal adjustment is Saisonbereinigung (Bereinigung is sort of cleaning by adjustment when talking in maths spheres) - we're struggling with differencing here.

    Depending on context "Entsaisonalisierung" is used. You may really get better answers with giving us the context you need help with.
