revised What are good online dictionaries for translation between German and English?
This is a service of the TU (university) Chemnitz and unrelated to the city Chemnitz, as the previous phrasing indicated (it also named the wrong domain).

comment What is a good translation for “I wish!” ?
@cemper93 Agreed, it's not interchangable. Just a related phrase you can use if the conversation partner used a slightly different line.

comment Is there a non-regional German expression for the Swabian term “Gschmäckle”?
While I'm not coming from the south and know the German term more in passing (I sure haven't ever used it myself, for example), I think 'fishy' is a pretty good English equivalent. That's exactly how I use 'fishy' in English. At least for those meanings of 'Gschmäckle' which aren't explicitly referring to food.

comment Is there a German analog for the English expression, “It's not rocket science”?
Definitely 'Hexenwerk'. The 'Wissenschaft' one doesn't feel strong enough to be a real synonym for me.
