comment Time-related phrases- clarification, please
If you are asking about German sentences, quote those sentences and not their English translation, so we can be certain what you are talking about. Also please write your observations first and then ask one or two clear questions – instead of just throwing half-finished sentences with question marks at the reader.

comment Accurate translation of “bildungsfern”
Can you state what dicitonary entries you were dissatisfied with? Also, what do you want to introduce nachhaltigkeitsfern or its English equivalent? Finally, in my understanding bildungsfern is not strictly tied (though strongly correlated) to the education you received – otherwise there would have been no need to create this word and one could have used gebildet or something similar instead.

@Grantwalzer: I do not think that there is any risk that we will once be overrun with such questions. Otherwise we would already have more of them by now. (Also, I think you are misusing the word cacophony.)

comment What does “bitte sehen” mean?
@Grantwalzer: I fail to see any “random cacophony”. Yes, research effort is not indicated, but we all know what the result would have been. And that’s only relevant if you want to treat this as a translation question, which it did not really turn out to be, though it started as such.

comment What does “bitte sehen” mean?
@Grantwalzer: Resulting from a misunderstanding/question does not make the question off-topic per se (at least in my opinion – the respective meta question is only about typos anyway). In particular, if the misunderstanding causing the question is of general interest (as for example it is about a common phrase like this question), I do not think we should close it. Compare for example to the many questions we have originating from a grammatical misconception.

comment How to ask German student to homecoming?
@Em1: I would rather suggest Absolventenfeier or Alumnifest, as Absolvententreffen somewhat implies that this is exclusive to alumni.

comment How to ask German student to homecoming?
@CarstenSchultz: Because he may be as confused as I was as to what homecoming is. This does not meen however that it is a good idea to translate the whole sentence.
