Hello my friend (do you only wish to address one person?)
I'm trying to translate a book into my native language but I have a problem in the following sentence:
As mentioned elsewhere no credit is taken for the weld metal cap height or root penetration bead.
What is the meaning of that highlighted expression?
Please note the following:
To be grammatically correct, your title should read "What does this mean?"
To be helpful, your title should read "No credit is taken for"
Start every new sentence with a capital letter.
Always capitalise the word "I" (first person singular).
In answer to your question, if you take credit for something you usually claim that it was your idea in the first place. I don't really understand how that fits in to your specific rather technical sentence. Perhaps the writer invented a machine but he wants to say that he was not responsible for the cap height or the bead. I don't know if that makes sense because I don't understand the terminology.
