I was looking up the German word for "Today's" and Google translate suggested "heutigen" but I did not see that even listed in my English to German dictionary. But I did find many instances written across various German sites.

Does "heutigen" also get used as "today's"? like "Today's news"

What are some examples of how they are properly used in a sentence.

heute is the adverb form as in

Heute gehen wir zum Labor (= Today we're going to the lab)

heutig is the adjective form that in German is used to say "today's"

Das heutige Wetter ist schlecht (Today's weather is bad)

Der heutige Mensch ist stärker als zuvor (=Today's man/person is stronger than before)

heutigen is declined form of "heutig"

  • which declension, example, otherwise perfectly answered.

Example: "Am heutigen Sonntag gehen wir in die Kirche". - "On today's sunday, we are going to the church." (But I'm not sure if you can say this in English?) "Die heutigen Nachrichten" - "Today's news" But you don't use "heutigen" very often. In this case I'd rather say "die Nachrichten von heute"
