comment How to say “please do not slam the door” in German?
You should provide the context for this sentence. The two current answers are both correct but j0chn's is better if you talk to someone and knut's is better for a sign to be put on a door.

comment Ist “exorbitant” heute noch gebräuchlich?
@Em1 Einfach mal ausrechnen. 1800 ist übertrieben 200 mal häufiger als exorbitant. 2000 nur noch 17 mal. Absolut gesehen "schrabben" schrabben alle Werte kurz über der 0%-Marke.

comment Ist “exorbitant” heute noch gebräuchlich?
@Em1 Eigentor? Die Relation zeigt doch, dass exorbitant vor 200 Jahren viel ungebräuchlicher war als gewaltig und übertrieben und heute regelrecht boomt. (Ausgegangen davon, dass Ngram repräsentativ über alle Epochen ist.)

comment Why are German numbers backwards?
By the way in older English books you'll find the numbers written the other way around, too (e.g. four and twenty). At least for certain ranges...

comment Translation of “gut x kilometer”
Interesting. I always used "gut" in the sense of "about" or "circa" but Duden confirms your statement that it always means "a bit more".

comment What is the translation of the following citation
And the inevitable silent downvote. I don't have a problem with having someone disagree with me but without an explanation it's just not helpful. How can I improve?!

comment What is the translation of the following citation
I think your suggestions are very loose. They barely resemble the structure and wording of the original sentences. In itself, the phrases are fine, but they don't really work as translations.

comment What is the translation for “random” in German?
Actually this does not answer the question. (Random as in weird, not as in having a lack of pattern.)

comment Is there an idiomatic equivalent in German for “add insult to injury”?
@starblue: I think they can all be used for personal injuries; the question lacks context. I don't get your limitation on technical difficulties for the first phrase. The other two remarks I agree with.

comment How do you translate German wordplay into English?
This question is very generic indeed. It's not just a DE/EN or EN/DE problem but rather a x/y problem where x and y are any two different languages. I really don't think there is a generic answer. In any case this probably belongs to linguistics.

comment How do you translate German wordplay into English?
@userunknown: It's a wordplay on the two different meanings of like (first: similarity, second: liking something) and flies (first: 3rd person of the verb fly, second: plural of the noun fly).
