I was searching for company names, and reached to a German word 'Strahlen' through Google. As per Google it meant 'rays'. I need a suggestion that, what is the exact meaning of 'Strahlen' and 'Strahler'. Can these be used as noun?

strahlen can be either a verb with the meaning of 'to shine', 'to beam',... or a noun, however, the "S" must be capitalized then: Strahlen, which is the plural form to Strahl='ray', 'beam'

Strahler = an object that emits the beams...

    There also is the figurative strahlen

Both of them are nouns. And Google was right with translating Strahlen to rays. Strahler is the thing which sends out rays, but in a technical sense, like 'projector' or a 'radiator'.
