received widespread international respect

Examples/ definitions with source references
Seine Ergebnisse finden breite internationale Beachtung und werden bereits in zahlreichen geophysikalisch und ozeanographisch ausgerichteten Untersuchungen verwendet.

His findings have been very well received internationally and are already being applied in numerous geophysical and oceanographic studies.

It seems a bit odd saying "received widespread international respect" and none of the usual translations for Beachtung really seems to fit. Does my proposed translation of the whole sentence work OK?

Context/ examples
His findings attract widespread international attention
I'm not sure that 'Beachtung' is that positive so would have doubts about 'aclaim' and 'respect'

Thanks! I think acclaim probably works best too :-)

Why did you correct the German original Irish_Elk?
