Gehört nach "English.SE". Das, was Dich interessiert, sind doch Englische Nuancen. –  user unknown Jan 30 '12 at 14:31

@userunknown: Why EL&U? Translations from English to German and German to English are on-topic here. We have the tags, as you've probably noticed. –  user508 Jan 30 '12 at 14:45
    
    
@Gigili: Read Roberts meta.german.stackexchange.com/a/152/266 answer - he is obviously talking about the finer points of the German language. This question here is for experts of the English language - no matter how they decided about translations, that's not our beer. –  user unknown Jan 30 '12 at 15:34

Den Deutschen Satz kann ich mir hervorragend unter einem Cartoon in der Titanic vorstellen. Im realen Leben sagt man besser "Nicht ohne Grund wird unser Support in den Bewertungen lobend erwähnt" –  bernd_k Jan 30 '12 at 16:27

Das klingt, als wolltest Du gleich noch den Grund nennen. Vielleicht liegt's am "why". Denn eigntlich willst Du ja nicht auf den Grund selber eingehen, sondern nur betonen, dass der Support so ausgezeichnet ist, dass er in den Bewertungen genannt wird.

Was hältst Du von:

There is a reason that our outstanding support is often mentioned in the ratings. (edited to include Gigili's suggestion)

...ohne "why"?

I think you should add "that" to your second sentence. "There is a reason that our outstanding support is often mentioned in the ratings." –  user508 Jan 30 '12 at 14:18
    
Good point, that sounds even better. –  elena Jan 31 '12 at 8:09
