What topics can I ask about here?
German Language & Usage Stack Exchange is a question-and answer site for speakers of all levels who want to share and increase their knowledge of the German language. Questions in both, English and German are welcome, but note that posts on Meta should always be in English.
Before asking, please consider the following to ensure that your question is welcome and on-topic here:
If your question could be answered by a dictionary, a grammar book, or another general reference, consult these. Explain why this did not help you when asking your question.
Translations requests from German to English should be restricted to cases where a profound knowledge of German is needed for understanding a phrase or an idiom. See: How do I ask good, on-topic questions for translations or about differences? and Does my translation request belong here and if not, where and how shall I ask it?
Translation requests to German should be of general interest and should provide sufficient context. Please understand that we can not be an individual translation service. Moreover, you should understand the meaning of the word or phrase you want to translate. See: Does my translation request belong here and if not, where and how shall I ask it? and How do I ask good, on-topic questions for translations or about differences?
Do not ask requests for proofreading, translations or spell checking larger texts. Instead indicate which individual aspects you are unsure about or need help with. See: Are questions related to peer review of a text on topic?
If your question is not specifically on-topic for German Language Stack Exchange, it may be on-topic on another Stack Exchange site. If no site currently exists that will accept your question, you may commit to or propose a new site at Area51, the place where new Stack Exchange communities are democratically created.
