"Everyone is welcome."
Translation:Jeder ist willkommen.
Would "Alle Menschen sind wilkommen" be okay? I understand that it means "All people are welcome." Please correct me if I'm wrong.
So sehe ich es auch. Aber wer weiß? Der Gender-Wahnsinn greift hier um sich. Z. B. Sagt man in den Nachrichten jetzt oft nur die weiblichen Berufsbezeichnungen mit einer kleinen Pause vor in/innen. (Tischler - innen) Die meisten Frauen haben mit den gewachsenen Ausdrücken keinerlei Probleme. Aber die Politik will mit dem Blödsinn von wirklichen Ungerechtigkeiten ablenken! Z. B. Bezahlung.
Slight difference indeed. "Someone" = one person out of others. "Anyone" = still one person out of others but without particular signs selected. "Someone has to do it but anyone is good for the job". In french (my native language) i understand it that way : "Quelqu'un doit le faire mais chacun peut le faire". From your name, i guess you are spanish mother tongue : "Algun tiene que hacerlo pero todos lo pueden". Am i clear enough ? Is my spanish right ?
"Everyone" and jeder treat people individually, and take singular verbs.
"Every person HAS a plate" because Person 1 has a plate and Person 2 has a plate and Person 3 has a plate etc. Thus also: Everyone HAS a plate.
Similarly in German: Jede Person HAT einen Teller and Jeder HAT einen Teller
On the other hand, "all" and alle treat people as a group, and take plural verbs. (English doesn't use "all" on its own as often as German.)
"All people HAVE a plate" and "All have a plate"; Alle Personen HABEN einen Teller; Alle HABEN einen Teller.
Why "jeder willkommen" is wrong, isn't "jeder trinken" correct, "ist" is by default present, right?
Thank you for modifying the words so there is no capitalized word that gives away which one goes first! That made it too easy before.
It's actually really bad for the German course, because now you can't tell the difference between sie and Sie or between fliegen and Fliegen etc.
And it just enforces the idea that German noun capitalisation is irrelevant.
Why is "Alle sind willkommen" not accepted?
That is accepted.
Do you have a screenshot showing that answer being rejected? If so, please share it with us by uploading it to a website somewhere such as imgur and telling us the URL of the image.
Otherwise I'm going to guess that you made a typo.
Why isn't jedermann accepted as an answer
Because that only means "everyone", not "Everyone is welcome". You would have to translate the whole sentence, e.g. Jedermann ist willkommen.
Though I'd recommend jeder ist willkommen or alle sind willkommen -- jedermann isn't a common word, in my experience.
Why Jeder ist willkommen. Jeder is "every" . Alles is everyone, everybody, everything, a noun in form in your hints (not demonstrative, descriptive, modifying adjective as in Alle Frauen) . In your examples, Alles ist klar. Alles ist willkommen. Please explain in your Tips clearly. Thanks!
Jeder is "every" .
Before a noun, yes -- jeder Hund is "every dog".
On its own, jeder means "everyone".
jeder as "everyone" focusses more on the every individual person, while alle as "everyone" focusses more on the entire group.
Alles is everyone, everybody, everything
No. alles is "everything" but not "everyone, everybody".
Not understanding why "Jeder sind wilkommen" is incorrect. Any advice?
My advice is to read all of the comments on this page before posting your own.
The use of jeder has been explained several times in different ways.
Can you please explain what exactly you are still confused about after reading the various comments?
If you are using a mobile app that doesn't show you the comments when you enter a sentence discussion, please stop -- it isn't helping you. Use the website https://www.duolingo.com/learn instead.
First of all, I read through plenty of comments and did not see my specific question being answered. I don't have time to scroll through hundreds of comments and replies. Perhaps if you implemented a system where you can pin the most asked questions to the top of the page, you wouldn't have to answer the same questions over and over again, which by your tone, you are tired of doing. You chose to be a moderator so deal with the cons of the job. You fixing to type me all of that exerted way more energy than just answering the question. I also do not know many people who use Duolingo on the computer, so perhaps take your frustrations up for lack of portability to the app to the developers and not people trying to learn. Lastly, by looking at how you respond to other people on this thread, you need to fix your attitude. Guten tag!
I don't have time to scroll through hundreds of comments and replies.
So instead you ask other people to expend time to answer questions again and again and again and again. That seems selfish to me.
Also, one reason why there are hundreds of comments is because people post questions over and over that have been answered before. If you think that doing so clutters the page, then please help by not contributing to this problem.

I do not know any way to contact developers. I also do not have any reason to believe that the interface will be changed any time soon.
So I provide advice to users who suffer from this problem, so that they can use a workaround.
The same to you!
The "other people" you are referring to is anyone who is willing to help. If you don't have the time, don't answer. If someone happened to come across and want to help, then great! I didn't specifically ask you, yet you chose to respond with attitude. It is selfish of me to expect a moderator of a forum to fulfill their work duties? Surely, in the job description when you took up this position or volunteered or whatever this position entails, requires you to answer the same question multiple times no? Copy and paste works wonders. I am not entitled to an answer by anyone, I threw it out there and hoped for someone to be helpful. Yet, I got you, who by being a MODERATOR should be more helpful. But I digress. This will be the first and last time I ask any questions on anything.
No; moderators don't sign up to answer questions.
They try to keep the forum somewhat tidy, for example, by removing off-topic comments such as "follow me on Instagram" or duplicate requests.
