comment Meaning and usage of “aufarbeiten”
@Autumn I think both "aufarbeiten" and "abarbeiten" are fine with emails but they mean to different things. "abarbeiten" means that you read through every mail and respond to them. "Aufarbeiten" means that you work through your mails and improve them or amend them or whatever.

comment Meaning and usage of “aufarbeiten”
"to finish something" is not covered by "aufarbeiten". It would rather be "abarbeiten" ("ab-" connotes the idea of decreasing the outstanding work).

comment How to say “I will have recovered by next week” in German
@MartinSchwehla It does answer the question; and is a correct answer at that. – That said, I don't think it's really helpful just to say "That's correct". Voting for "delete" just for that reason.

comment Meaning and usage of “aufarbeiten”
I'm afraid but this it not completely spot-on. With "experience" the connotation of "aufarbeiten" is a little different. It's derivable from your answer, though. That said, it's not clear if the author meant that the experience still has to be mentally assimilated or if this process is already finished and he merely wants to collect the experiences and adapt them into a book.

comment Is “los” really an adjective
@Emanuel Duden listet sehr wohl das Beispiel: "auf dem Fest ist nichts los gewesen", fasst dann aber diese Use Case weiter unten in die Gruppe "Wendungen, Redensarten, Sprichwörter". Duden macht also keine Trennung zwischen "Der Hund ist los." und "Auf der Party ist was los." – Dies ist meiner Ansicht nach ein "Fehler" im Duden, wahrscheinlich aber der Vereinfachung wegen.

comment Is “los” really an adjective
In the sense as used in the other question, it's kind of a phrasal verb for me and in that respect I think the answer is wrong. Same is true for, e.g., "weg sein". Can't find any reliable sources for "los sein", though.

comment Even though I do so…I have to do that. - How to say this in German
Could you please narrow down the question to one issue. There are three sentences that have nothing in common. Please specify what exactly your question is about? And tell us a bit about your research and why it didn't satisfy you. We'd really like to help, but a mere translation request is off-topic.
