the question is about the word "die Mietenden" in following sentence:
Der Druck auf die Mietenden steigt und steigt.
The sentence was found in M+W journal published by Swiss Mietverband. In particular, I was looking for a plural from der Mieter / die Mieterin, the results being as follows: die Mieter/-innen (as per standard DE rules).
However, I can't grasp why exactly die Mietende was used in here, why didn't the authors use "die Mieter*innen", for example? Could this word be used because of the style of the article (i.e. a Swiss-German word)?
