Translating Terminal Strip?

I was hesitant to put this in the wiring thread as it's not a typical guitar wiring question and I didn't know how alive it is anymore.

Anyway, for those of you knowledgeable in european style terminal strips, is there a way to convert something like this:

http://guide-images.makeprojects.or...hLm3lAMk.medium

into a regular diagram? If someone could point me to a resource for that then I would love you indefinitely. Alternatively, if there isn't, if someone would tell me what it would look like as a diagram then I would be forever indebted, but I don't expect that as it seems like a fair bit of work to do for a stranger for free.

Thank you in advance.

in a terminal strip like that, doesn't each wire just get connected to the wire opposite from it?

I've never actually used one, but that's my understanding of it at least.. so each thing listed on the top row is just connected to whatever's listed on the bottom row. like 'audio pot' goes to 'phono jack +', photocell gets connected to 'phono jack -', ect.

whats the picture from, by the way?

It's from an optical tremolo tremolo pedal.

He is right, each wire just goes to the opposite wire, but they aren't used in guitar pedals (or any audio electronics)

Well thanks a heap you guys . It seemed like that would be too easy, and yes, the design for this 'pedal' wasn't exactly worked out by guitar players (but it works)

Its from a DIY optical trem pedal. Technically you don't even need that thing, you could just solder the wires together.
