    Default German Translation Request

    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.


    Thanks!

    Jim

    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?

    Well, until right now I thought Captain Hornblower was this funny looking guy with a skinny neck and no mouth.

    But Google tells me that Captain Hornblower is a movie released in 1951.


    And Captain Hornblower is wedding yacht based in San Francisco.
