comment Best German expression for being metaphorically “rusty”
@Phe0nix: Is that not just literal translation? außer can mean other things too, as in außer Betrieb, which does not mean except operation, but out of order. If there is something that people do not use any more, it is außer Anwendung. There are various other cases, I am sure.

I usually say außer Übung sein. Somehow makes more sense to me than aus der Übung sein.
