I am not firm in swiss german, but I think, "Sammelbuchung" - a collation of 
transactions - is really different from "split transaction"/"Mehrteilige 
Buchung" or "Zusammengesetzter Buchungssatz" 
The later represents ONE event, which affects more than 2 accounts.

The classical example for a split transaction is:
cash 119 € ./. sales income 100 €
               tax           19 €

while  a "Sammelbuchung" could be:
expense at MIGROS   10 CHF 
expense at Mövenpick 5 CHF ./. Cash 15 CHF

- 2 independent events conflated by lazyness.

I am not shure, if that is really good. ;-)

Probably such details should better be discused on the german list
