Ich mehrere Sätze, die ich übersetzen muss, in denen desire vorkommt. Wie würdet Ihr desire übersetzen als wünschen oder wollen? Vielen Dank!

Continuously imaging what I desire without being able to stop it, means I have no control over myself

von lulumi, 2015-10-28, 14:31  like dislike  Spam?  87.149.144...
Vielen Dank für die schnelle Rückmeldung.

Ich habe die Sätzte nun so übersetzt:

Mir ständig vorzustellen, was ich mir wünsche, ohne damit aufhören zu können, bedeutet, dass ich keine Kontrolle über mich selbst habe.

Mir vorzustellen, was ich mir wünsche, gibt mir das Gefühl, als ob ich mehr Kontrolle darüber hätte, was ich machen muss.

Ich bin aber nach wie vor etwas unzufrieden.

Ohne näheren Kontext (Worum geht es hier, was ist die logische Aussage?) lässt sich schwer etwas sagen.
Im Deutschen wird gerne substantiviert, also evtl. "seine Gedanken ständig um seine Wünsche kreisen lassen" oder "sich seine Absichten bewusst machen".

 #822354
Vielen Dank für den Vorschlag. Ich denke, Gedanken um seine Wünsche kreisen lassen, trifft es ganz gut. Zum Kontext: Es geht um Grübeln, darum, dass man sich ständig vorstellt, was man eigentlich möchte und inwieweit einem das hilft voranzukommen. Vielen Dank noch einmal!

What dubious Website are you linking to, Jim46? It promotes a book on "Islamization", has no link to the source of informaton (Tiroler Tageszeitung), does not mention any quantities and has no hard facts suggesting that a rise in turnover is due to the migrant crisis and not to gun licence holders replacing their old guns. That's pure scaremongering.

I don't see the book promotion you speak of.  This is one of very many American "alternate" news

Ausgerechnet die Tschechen, die so viel ich weiß noch keinen Flüchtling aufgenommen haben, tönen blöd herum!
Möglich, dass in Tirol mehr Feuerwaffen gekauft wurden, dort ziehen ja auch keine Flüchtlingsströme durch. Es ist immer wieder beobachtet worden, dass Fremden-Angst und Fremdenfeindlichkeit am größten dort sind, wo sich selten ein Flüchtling hinverirrt.
Die derzeitigen Flüchtlinge werden an der Grenze versorgt, in Züge oder Busse verfrachtet und an die deutsche Grenze gebracht, außer sie suchen in Österreich um Asyl an, dann geht es in Erstaufnahmezentren. Abgesehen von den Leuten, die sich freiwillig oder beruflich um Flüchtlinge kümmern, haben noch die wenigsten Österreicher einen oder eine von ihnen zu Gesicht bekommen.

As to the Second Amendment, you fail to mention that it has been a hotly disputed issue ever since it was foisted on the US statute books. By no means all the Founding Fathers championed or wholeheartedly endorsed this revamping of the Constitution.

I don't know the Daily Mail.  According to them, Britain is more violent than the U.S.

In 2009, twelve years after the Firearms Act of 1997 was passed, Daily Mail Online reported that
Britain was “the most violent country in Europe.” They also reported that Britain’s home figures
showed “the UK [had] a worse rate for all types of violence than the U.S. and South Africa.”

As an Englishman, born and bred, wanting and often needing accurate translations from English to German and visa versa, I often find myself frustrated, misguided, misled, and in some cases downright offended by some of the debates and discussions held within this forum.

I have followed this forum for some time now, having, as previously stated, need for accuracy. Why misled, misguided and offended? Because far too often I have seen NON native ENGLISH speakers, basically telling bonafide natives that THEY are wrong. How dare they? I would not presume to correct a native of a country of which I did not have a FULL understanding for that language. Furthermore,  the title and therefore, obviously the remit for this forum is that of an English/German dictionary. If that is the case, why are so many entries inserted...

Thank youfor your history references Proteus. I take it that you must be a true Englishman. If this is the case and you are wishing to get down to basics, one, as an Englishman would call those great "American" leaders, traitors, as by the definitions you yourself have given them, they were English but they chose to fight against their own peoples. GIving them as examples would be the act of an American, not an Englishmen. Not only that, they encouraged semi-illliteracy by not educating or setting up educational establishments that maintained true English, but once again I thank you for reminding me of American history and a number of traiterous Englishmen. Furthermore I would like to re-iterate that I do not wish or seek to confrontation, simply accuracy, though I will point out that I will not take history lessons...

Thank you for your corrections. You are absolutely correct in that the English educational system is not infallible and neither am I. I am also not a contributor. I also know the difference between English and bastardised English, even if I at times mistype or spell incorrectly. I also know that I would expect that an English/German forum contributor to be accurate in their entries. I do not have to be. I am here to learn German from German nationals or those who at least grew up or were educated there. I intend to hopefully live in Germany. I can already speak, and more importantly, know the subtleties of the language from being a native and educated from primary school through to career and finally semi retirement, in England.

Agree with Ivy.

Ich glaube, das Zirkus ist grausam. Wildtiere verhalten sich immer instinktiv, darum müssen Dompteure zu brutalen Methoden greifen, um die Tiere beherrschen zu können. Sie lassen die Tiere oft hungern und schlagen sie, damit die Tiere tun, was die Dompteure wollen. Zwischen den Shows werden die Tiere in kleinen und schmutzigen Käfigen gehalten, die viel kleiner sind als die Käfige in Zoos.

Ich halte den Zirkus für grausam.

Was halten Sie vom Einsatz von Tieren im Zirkus? / Was halten Sie davon, Tiere im Zirkus einzusetzen?

Ich halte den Zirkus für grausam. Wilde Tiere verhalten sich immer instinktiv, deshalb greifen Dompteure häufig zu brutalen Methoden, um die Tiere beherrschen zu können. Sie lassen die Tiere oft hungern und schlagen sie, damit sie tun, was die Dompteure wollen. Zwischen den Shows werden die Tiere (oftmals) in schmutzigen Käfigen gehalten, die viel kleiner sind als die in Zoos.

With or without "the"???

Thanks in advance!

In dates, the the is said but not written.  #822056

A second meeting is planned from 31 July -/to 2 August.

Although that seems a very long time for one meeting - do you mean Besprechung or Treffen?
Antwort: 
Thank you very much!  #822058

They always call it meeting, so I won't screw with that, but I couldn't quite get my head around the "the" :-)

You might used "for" instead of "on".

A word of advice: a well-brought-up lady should think carefully before using the expression "to screw with something". I do not intend to explain why.

In context: spoken vs. written  #822299
von atemp (US), 2015-10-29, 23:27  like dislike  Spam?  
As spoken it would be phrased differently:
A second meeting is planned for July thirty-first through the second of August.

NB AE generally writes the day number after the month, e.g. July 31st, i.e. as-spoken.

A speaker of BE English would have to do a bit of mental gymnastics before even understanding the version by atemp. (Especially the use of "through".)
BE would be more like: "A second meeting has been planned from the thirty-first of July to the second of August.
So consider which audience you are targeting.

Mental gymnastics   #822308
von atemp (US), 2015-10-30, 03:14  like dislike  Spam?  
Yeah, and every time I hear a BE speaker say "this is different to that" all I hear is a prepositional fart.
FWIW July Nth is equivalent to Nth of July; choice is made to sound best. Use of the through preposition makes explicit the inclusion of the final day, whereas the to affords uncertainty.

Facts  #822310
von Catesse (AU), 2015-10-30, 03:52  like dislike  Spam?  
I am not arguing as to which form occupies the moral high ground; I am merely stating facts.
I see logic in year-month-day, and logic in day-month-year. In month-day-year, I see habit, not logic. No matter how often I hear it, and no matter that I know perfectly well what it means, nine/eleven still grates on me, for all the wrong reasons.
"different to something": not just British English, but bad English, if you want to stick to the old rules. Cause for the ruler-across-the knuckles treatment in my schooldays.

we received the sentence above with "has" but my gut and my brain tell me to use "have" - please help me, which one is correct?

Without more context, has.  #822057

It is considered a single area, not 100,000 individual square metres.
