I'm a beginner in German. The google translation translates "Darf ich euch vorstellen?" to "May I introduce you?"
Is it "May I introduce you (to others)?" Please somebody confirm it.


Depending on the context you can translate

May I introduce you?


Darf ich Sie [mit Herrn Kowalski] bekannt machen?
Darf ich Sie [Herrn Kowalski] vorstellen?
(Sie: no friend[s] or relative[s])

Darf ich euch bekannt machen?
Darf ich euch [Frau Raddatz] vorstellen?
(euch: friends or relatives)

Darf ich dich [meiner neuen Freundin / meinem Onkel] vorstellen?
(dich: friend or relative)

Concerning your title example

Darf ich euch vorstellen?
May I introduce you to others?


Darf ich euch Frau Raddatz vorstellen?
May I introduce you to Mrs Raddatz?
but can also mean
May I introduce Mrs Raddatz to you?

  • Ok, My question was if it means "May I introduce you?" or "May I introduce myself?" but from your answer I understand it means all "May I introduce you to someone (for example to Mr. Kowalski).". Danke.😊

    @Chan Kim: Right, there is no case for »May I introduce myself?« Please see also my updated answer.
