What you describe is a mess, as are about all your questions that work in a very similar way... I told you about 3-5 times already, and many others did too. We are not a translation service. We want to help you learning and for that we expect you to show us what you did, and where you have problems so we can effectively address and exterminate them. – Vogel612 Feb 20 '14 at 7:50
I addition to that: Of course, one sometimes wonders what the nearest analogue to an expression of one language in another language is. But usually when trying to speak or write in a foreign language one should try to use what one has at one's disposal to express what one has in mind, not express it in one's native language first and then translate. – Carsten S Feb 20 '14 at 9:34

I would translate it as "was für ein Chaos!" in this case.

Hello @Andrea while your answer is correct, you might want to provide some context and alternatives.. also I personally would like to see questions like the one you answered unanswered, due to the fact that any answer to such a question most probably misses the point of this site. – Vogel612 Feb 20 '14 at 7:59
Hallo Vogel, ich bin neu hier und habe mich gefreut, helfen zu können. Ich verstehe allerdings was du meinst, habe deinen Beitrag aber erst gelesen, als meine Antwort hochgeladen war. – Andrea Feb 20 '14 at 8:29
Ich bin zwar auch des Vogels Meinung, dass diese Art von Frage (zumindest in der jetzigen Form) unangebracht ist, trotzdem ist aus meiner Sicht die Antwort als solche erstmal ok (wenn auch knapp). Da du neu bist, @Andrea, an dieser Stelle die Einladung in den Chat, wo auch gerne Fragen von Lernenden beantwortet werden, die auf der Hauptseite nicht gut aufgehoben sind. – OregonGhost Feb 20 '14 at 8:43
