comment Difference between singular and plural formal form of address
Yes, it is. And in English: "You are a doctor?" and "You are doctors?". The first "You" only makes sense for singular etc.

comment Difference between singular and plural formal form of address
No, there aren't any hints in the German language. "Können Sie mir sagen, ...?" is the same if you ask one or many people. Isn't it the same in English too?

comment mit “zu” oder ohne, wenn eine Verbalphrase als Subjekt fungiert
Ich dachte, Englisch wäre Ihre Muttersprache - und weil alle Stackexchange-Websites englisch sind? Habe mich da wohl ein bisserl getäuscht :)

comment How do synchronous interpreters handle long German split verb sentences?
when they hear the word "nicht" they are usually at the word "Rücksichtnahme". So there's enough time to raise their voice to a higher level at the end, to make it sound like a question that can be answered with "No". And they do it if it is unclear at the beginning of the sentence whether there is a "nicht" on its way or not.
