As the others have already said: "vor" is temporal here, which means it takes the dative. Look at your sentence again. The motion expressed in it is not towards the "Anmeldung" but towards/into "Beratung". So "vor" obviously isn't involved in the motion - it belongs to the phrase telling you when to perform this motion: "vor der Anmeldung". Incidentally, ...

"Vor" is temporal here: Please go to the consultancy in X before signing up.

Whoever writes "Anfrage nach" does not know German well. This happens with Germans, too, of course, in the same way that Americans also make mistakes in English. Correct versions would be "Anfrage wegen +Genitiv", "Anfrage zu +Dativ" or - best and most formal - "Anfrage bezüglich +Genitiv". The word "Anfrage" is formal anyway (usually used in written German ...

In Duden – Richtiges und gutes Deutsch, 6. Aufl. Mannheim 2007 findet man die folgende Aussage: Anfrage wird in der Regel mit der Präposition wegen verbunden: Ihre Anfrage wegen des Termins haben wir erhalten. In der Amts- und Kaufmannssprache wird auch mit der Präposition bezüglich angeschlossen: Ihre Anfrage bezüglich der Lieferungen beantworten wir ...

Since it's Frage nach one would think that it would be Anfrage nach, but I have to agree with the article. Can't tell you if it's completely incorrect, since historically, it wouldn't have been used this way in the first place. (It would have been something like anfragen bei jemandem + relative clause) Personally, I wouldn't recommend nach, because ...

First: You are right. The reason this is funny is the notion of unauthorized people being fished (instead of them doing the fishing.) Beside the other already posted possibilities I would also use: Angeln durch Unbefugte ist verboten! or you could use unbefugtes Angeln ist verboten! A remark from my subjective feeling: To fish in Germany you ...

"Angeln durch Unbefugte" would work as well.

"Angeln für Unbefugte verboten." or "Angeln ist Unbefugten verboten." would both be very clear and a correct sentence. However, this cannot be inserted in the accumulation. You would have to change it into "widerrechtliches Angeln", as rogermue suggested. Result: "Baden, Verunreinigen, Einlassen von Hunden ( , / und) widerrechtliches Angeln ist verboten."

Simply: Angeln verboten or widerrechtliches Angeln verboten.

So, is it correct to use "von" (and not "aus") in yes it is Is the change of preposition due to "dort"? that's the point. Changing from "Niederlande" to "dort" changes the preposition from "aus" to "von".

Only "an der" is correct unless you're not teaching at this university, then you would work "für die"university. If you would say, I work "bei der" university, then you'd only work nearby."In der" would be correct but it's pretty outdated to say.

All of an der, bei der, in der and für die are acceptable with arbeiten. One might tend to prefer an for professors. (Just as Crissov said in the comments)

The genitive forms of the pronouns are "meiner", "deiner", "seiner", "ihrer", "seiner", "unser", "euer", "ihrer", so it's "anstatt seiner". Note, however, that all the genitive forms are relatively uncommon in colloquial speech.

I think you have (at least) three possibilities here: You take the genitive of the personal pronoun (male, singular) which is seiner: Anstatt seiner habe ich sie gewählt. Since nobody uses the genitive form seiner in every-day speech, you can use the dative form ihm; my guess is that is the most common version but prescriptivists won't like it: Anstatt ...

'Jenseits' can also mean 'beyond': 'Jenseits von Gut und Böse' => "Beyond Good and Evil', so I'd go with "beyond thought, wisdom hums" for your translation.

I believe your translation is pretty straight forward. To try to translate it differently might add complications that are not necessary and could eventually even cloud the meaning of what you try to say. The only correction I have is to remove the comma. Unless I am mistaken, in German you wouldn't put a comma there (see here: ...
