No, you are not correct.

German imperatives (commands), like English, do not include an explicit subject if it is "du" or "ihr" ("Komm her!" = "Come here!" (to one person); "Kommt her!" = "Come here!" (to several people).

But if the subejct is "Sie" then you have to state it in German: "Kommen Sie her!" = "Come here!" (formally).

That doesn't mean that you have to add it in English - it's still a command form and English only has one command form whether the "you" being spoken to is one person or many, a little child or your boss's boss.

hello Vjay, "Bitte tragen Sie sich ein" would exactly mean Please fill yourself in which makes no sense; what you could use is "Bitte tragen Sie ihre genauen Angaben (Details) ein" or depending on the information should give "Bitte f├╝llen Sie den Vordruck (form) aus". However, the translation is an idiom and will be understood from people speaking German.

So unfortunately you are not correct. Best regards Uli (mothertongue is german)

"Bitte tragen Sie sich in die Liste ein" is possible.
