View Full Version : German Translation Request

10-10-2005, 10:18 PM
Good Morning! I am making a holiday greeting card for a customer and he wants it in German.

I know just where to go to find German speakers, so here is my query:

How do you spell "Merry Christmas" in German? Umlaut and all.

Frohe Weihnachten!

Frohe Weihnachten!
That is exactly what I got when I used Google to translate. But my customer says that there is an Umlaut in there somewhere.

McMaster_de, Tara, Beezer - where are you guys?

Thank you Captain Hornblower. I would like to put in the required paperwork to raise your rank to Colonel or Admiral.

One more - how do you write "Good Morning!" in German? Is it "Guten Morgen!" like Google says it is, or is there an Umlaut in there somewhere?

For a moment I thought, you don't know who Captain Hornblower is... ...but I can't believe it Well, until right now I thought Captain Hornblower was this funny looking guy with a skinny neck and no mouth. :lol:

But Google (http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=Captain+Hornblower&btnG=Google+Search) tells me that Captain Hornblower is a movie released in 1951.

And Captain Hornblower is wedding yacht based in San Francisco.
