A Längenkreis is is not the same as a meridian (English) / Meridian (German).
A Längenkreis is a full circle around the poles of a rotating sphere (like Earth). I.e. it consists of two opposite meridians.
To my knowledge there is no equivalent term in English. The term can only be explained in English and not translated.
