comment What is a “smart alec” in German?
One could add that while Klugscheißer refers more to someone who brags with knowledge, Besserwisser and Neunmalklug refer more to people correcting others without being asked to do so. Schlaumeier is often used ironically, when somebody did something stupid while displaying confidence in doing something smart.
