comment Is there a rule which preposition to use for a place?
Gigili, of all the preposition you cited in your comment, only the one I mentioned are used with a place and has for translation to in this context. "auf+Platz" would me on a place, "bis" means until, "in" means in or inside, "nach" and "vor" are after and before and "hin und her" can be translated into back and forth (or to and fro which has the same meaning). If any of those preposition are translated by to then, not likely with a place.

Would the person who downvoted me, tell me why? / Kann die Person, die mir ein "Minuspunkte" gegeben hat, mir sagen warum?

comment “Redirect an address to a server” - which preposition should I use?
@feeela and Ray: one can't change that a language is a living thing and what was the wrong of yesterday could be the right of tomorrow. On another note, maybe this meaning of umbiegen should be added to LEO. Does one know how to do that?

comment “Redirect an address to a server” - which preposition should I use?
@Hendrik: I also heard it from the mouth of one of my german colleague. Joachim: good to know the level of formality of umbiegen*/*umleiten. The mail I wanted to write was for some colleague anyway. One question though, would it be correct to use auf with umbiegen too, or to use nach as I first thought.

I think that there is more to add, but I wanted to throw those few leads I had.

Ich habe eine Seite gefunden, die meint, dass es Österreichisch ist. Irgendwie, habe ich meine Zweifel...

comment Using a clause as subject
@user unknown: it isn't, the subject ist "What we do" and the verb is ist followed by a description of what is done.

comment Is there a German word to describe sentence parts which are delimited by commas?
@Tom: well I could narrow the definition so: a sentence part, delimited by commas, centered around a verb and making sense. I would have added that they should have a subject, but infinitive clause doesn't have any, although I think it is implied.

@ApoY2k: I still don't see any difference. I could say that "they are both _Nebensatz" for example. But I'm afraid we are slowly going into semantics.

@Tim: not really, it should reather both describe part of the sentence that would make more or less sense when taken outside of its context.

comment What is the origin of the rules about the capitalization of the first letter of each noun?
@ApoY2k: Yeah for example the capitalization of Sie or the pronoun Ihr when one is being polite to someone else. But I was interested in the rules about the nouns.

comment What are good online dictionaries for translation between German and English?
Leo is the reference when it comes to translating words to or from german. It might be sometimes hard to choose one word over another, but for that there is experience, the forum, and now GL&U.
