Frage:
Entspricht der Duden-Hinweis" 'Alternative Schreibung' unserem [Rsv.]? » antworten

Kann sein, muss aber nicht sein. Zumindest in diesem Fall bezieht es sich auf eine Alternative zur vom Duden empfohlenen Schreibung. Das muss nicht zwingend mit der weniger gebräuchlichen Schreibweise (unser "Rsv.") übereinstimmen.
Frage:
Untangling https://contribute.dict.cc/?action=edit&id=1350805&p=1&...: "acquittal from sin" = "Sündenerlass" » antworten
von tomaquinaten (US/DE), Last modified: today, 08:08  Spam?  
From this EXAMPLE OF AN ENTANGLE ENTRY much can be learned.

1. It is imperative to indicate and to respect THE DIRECTION OF A PROPOSED
 TRANSLATION
  teadrinker unfortunately failed to do indicate a direction; thus voters were left to guess that
 his/her protected outbound term is EN “acquittal”.

2. Technical terms should always be cited in their full SPECIFIC CONTEXT.
 Teadrinker misled subsequent voters by failing to give the exact EN equivalent of DE
 "Sündenerlass", causing knowledgeable voters to object to what seemed to be a peculiar and
 incorrect use of the term "acquittal".
      It is not enough to assign a term to a subject area or even to give a generic context by
 adding a bracketed quasi-definition, if the term is used in a sense contrary to general usage.

Frage:
animals ascend vs ascend animals » antworten
von socialninja (AT), yesterday, 14:41  Spam?  
hi!
what would be correct or at least less false ;) animals ascend or ascend animals?
meaning should be „the rise of the animals“ as in getting more rights, animal welfare etc.
don‘t wanna us ascending or of in between the words, as it‘s supposed to be used for marketing purposes, but should of course be kind of correct :)
thank you in advance for your help!

Neither works in English, unless the animals are taking a trip to heaven.

Animal welfare is gaining more prominence. . . .
Animal rights are gaining more attention . . .
Animals are attaining more rights . . . .

thx for your answer, but isn‘t „ascend“ also a synonym for arise, progress, elevate, move up etc.? as far as i know it‘s meaning‘s not only the one you‘ve described
Antwort:

 #898842
Wouldn't for example "improving living conditions of animals" be more appropriate to describe...this you try to say...

I understand the word "ascend" relating to human beeings, as making a career (climbing up or so)
an animal wearing a tie, holding speaches driving luxory cars, having dinner as a sign of being risen...
( It sounds to me not really matching with animals)

Or to say a different thought: Animals eat, sleep. run around. They don't t observe themselves, realize they are not doing fine, organize with each other gatherings, discuss, demonstrate and fight for a better way of living..- It's like they have to be helped, so the circumstances are improved (by humans or nature)
[ I would not say "the circumstances are rising" or "the circustances are ascending" ]

They, the animals, are not active themselves. It's done for them.

- and I share the view of Antworter88 as well

Supposedly, Jorkins would demand that the late-paying client sign a bond obligating said client to pay at a future date or have the amount collected by force of law. Jorkins would "have his [the client's] bond" because Jorkins would keep the bond at his law office.

von MichaelK (US), Last modified: yesterday, 23:07  Spam?  
 #898834
"His bond" is the client's bond. Compare it to "I have his word on that." The bond was technically 'issued' by the client, but of course drafted by the law office and presented to the client for signature.

This is a great passage, and still relevant nowadays. When I bought my current automobile some years ago, the salesperson said he was willing to come down on the price, but that his boss was, to put it into Dickens' language, resolved to have the full price paid.

The reason the article is making the play on words "big bagel" instead of "big apple" is because it's emphasising the Jewish character of NYC.

Ok, so in that case we should delete.  Alternatively, there is currently no entry that directly equates "New York" to "The Big Apple", so we could change it to that.  Which would people prefer?

several years of ...  mehrjährig » antworten
von aphoenix (US), yesterday, 07:19  Spam?  
https://contribute.dict.cc/?action=edit&id=81271
These don't quite match.  The English side should be:
"several years of sth."
Examples:  "The region had several years of drought."
"Several years of drought left the reservoirs dry."
Könnte jemand vorschlagen, wie man die deutsche Seite die englische anpassen könnte?
Antwort: 
several years of ...  mehrjährig  #898825
von timfefe (AU/AT), yesterday, 09:10  Spam?  
Hi, I'm not sure I see why the two sides don't quite match.
He has several years of experience in sales. = Er hat mehrjährige Erfahrung im Vertrieb.
If the EN side were "several years of sth.", then the DE side would need to be something like
mehrjähriger/mehrjährige/mehrjähriges etw.
But perhaps I didn't quite catch your point.

BTW, the verb "anpassen" (to adjust/match sth to sth) can only take one of the following two forms:
etwas (akk) etwas (dat) anpassen
etwas (akk) an etwas (akk) anpassen

Yes, I understand it in the sense that this is what a teacher or talkmaster would do.  Moving alongside, encouraging the persons to speak/contribute in the discussion, to reflect or ask questions, but not being very active oneself in it, not being dominant...

If "moderate" means to lower or uppress, then I don't think this is meant.

Thanks, Redrufus and tessy99. 4;tessy99, yes "moderate" is what a teacher or discussion chair would do.

A eulogy is a speech or piece of writing that praises someone or something very much.

A eulogy is a speech, usually at a funeral, in which a person who has just died is praised.

yesterday at 15:19 I used the word "talkmaster", I know it from german television shows and believed so far I can use it 1 to 1 in english. I just now saw in this dict.cc "talk show host" on the english side, wich I meant to say. "Talkmaster" is only in the german language wich confuses me, because "talk" is no german word. ( and master also not ) ( by origin they are both english wich made me believe, put together as "talkmaster", they mean the same in english of course) When we use English expressions as a naturally belonging word, we call these words "eingedeutscht." ( ein-ge-deutsch-t = in-to-german-ed ) Wich means that we got used to use the term for such a long time, that we don't realize that they are not german anymore.
Antwort: 
von Windfall (GB), today, 09:51  Spam?  
 #898849
There are a surprising number of German words like that where the German words are based on English words, but we don't use that word with that meaning. Examples include Handy, Oldtimer and Bodybag. We do the same with "Ersatz", which doesn't usuallt mean a replacement in general in English, but specifically means an inferior substitute.

taken on affidavit » antworten
von Deseret (SI), 2018-10-19, 14:07  Spam?  
Besides these, there were sundry immense manuscript Books of Evidence taken on affidavit, strongly bound, and tied together in massive sets, a set to each cause, as if every cause were a history in ten or twenty volumes.

As Wikipedia says: An affidavit (/ˌæfɪˈdeɪvɪt/ AF-i-DAY-vit) is a written sworn statement of fact voluntarily made by an affiant or deponent under an oath or affirmation administered by a person authorized to do so by law.
So I think what we're talking about here is books of evidence that was given in the form of sworn statements.
In English the person asking for a statement/affidavit "takes" the statement/affidavit, e.g. "the police took a statement from the witness". This means the police (asked for  and) received a statement.
Because this is not modern English, it is possible that English use has changed and I am therefore wrong, but this is how I interpret it.

An affidavit is a sworn statement  #898806

An affidavit is a sworn statement, with criminal sanction if the content is false and the maker had lied.   If the witness is not a Christian then a variant is used.   It is still in modern use, in civil disputes.

That does seem reasonable and seems to match what Zuchi1 and I said - except I'm not sure it would necessarily have to be a notary who took the affidavit. If you are able to translate the equivalent of "with affidavits" or "with sworn witness statements", that seems reasonable to me.

The Pickwick Papers depict a long legal process in the earlier dysfunctional English legal system, that was why my law lecturer mentioned it.  

Notaries in the English legal system are senior solicitors.  They are not the only ones empowered to administer oaths.  The translation injected more into the original sentence.
