comment Usage of space before punctuation mark / Leerzeichen vor Satzzeichen
Der Begriff french spacing war mit bis heute unbekannt. Im Englischen waren 2 Leerzeichen nach Satzende en vogue um 1900. Im Französischen würde ich nie 2 Leerzeichen benutzen. Aber vor und nach : kommt je ein Leerzeichen. Siehe auch en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_sentence_spacing

comment When to use “der/die/das” instead of “er/sie/es”?
OK, I'm neither a native German nor English speaker, so I'm clearly no expert. For me, the "Die sind billig" stresses the fact that those are cheap, whereas "Diese sind billig" would just state that those are cheap, without the same intensity. What do you think? If you can come up with a better answer, please reply to the original question :-)

comment “erstellen” or “erzeugen”?
Thank you for the discussion. I think that I now better get the subtle difference. So it should be ... erstellt -- but is this true even if the program has to do possibly complicated computations to conform with Swiss law?

Thank you! From your explanation, I'll probably settle to 'Mit Crésus Lohnbuchhaltung 10.0.067 erzeugt', since the program does some complex calculations based on the original user input.

@bummi: thank you for your reply -- you should however use the 'answer' button, not the 'comment' link for your answer to get a better visibility. This is how the StackExchange sites work.
