I am trying to build a blog home page with the usual list of article excerpts, where the excerpt contains a read more link to the complete article.
In english a read more link might look like:
Continue reading “article title”
and similar variants.
The possible German translations (and variants):
- Weiterlesen “article title”
- Hier weiterlesen “article title”
- Weiter geht es hier
sound weird to me, and I am German :-) .
[UPDATE] To get an impression why I have the strange feeling with the German "solutions" just grab a screenreader and open a site like spiegel.de, when the text is spoken out loud, the "mehr" just doesn't feel right, in contrast the English "continue reading ..." sounds natural for me.
In a book you might find a variation of "lesen Sie weiter auf Seite xx", that does feel natural and fits to the medium, I try to find a natural sounding solution for a blog (digital medium) too
Are there more and hopefully (semantically) better alternatives ?
