I want to translate the phrase

Finder will be rewarded.

to German. Somehow there is no dictionary on the net which contained the phrase. I am looking for a metaphorical equivalent.

    It's better to pick the most important words (finder, reward) and you'll find the answer by using Google and/or dictionaries: Pons, dict.cc

  • Would "a finder's reward" be possible in English?

You could just remark Finderlohn!

If you know, what you want to pay, you could combine it with the sum you want to pay.

  • Such a sweet lil' donkey ^^. The "zu vergeben" from the last poster sounds unusual.

  • @Grantwalzer Thats kind of a eye-catcher. It is unusual, so you look for it. They have lost nothing, the look for a new flat. Normally you would offer a Provision - but that sounds too business-like.

  • @knut, what you probably mean is commission, oh I see what you are doing, you refer to the german word Provision

In German you use a noun for this: Finderlohn.


Im ganzen Satz:

Dem Finder winkt eine Belohnung.


Some languages have words where other languages need whole sentences for.

In Germany we say "Finderlohn" which means "Reward for the finder".
