Hi Micheal,

Sue told you already the common translations. Sometimes you can also hear 'Bitte schön' and 'Bitte sehr' as a more polite version of the simple 'Bitte' but it means the same.

Best regards Angel

We don't really have a literal equivalent, but many other possible sentences.

  • "Bitte" - literally "please", and very common here, especially if it's a small thing like passing something at the table.
  • "Gern geschehen!" or short "Gerne!" - literally "It happened gladly". so it's a sort "with pleasure"
  • "Nichts zu danken!" - "nothing to say thanks about" so like "don't mention it"
  • "Keine Ursache!" - literally "no reason!"

Hi, Micheal,

we have also another expression for that, sorry I forgot.

'Nicht der Rede wert' / 'Ist doch nicht der Rede wert' coll.

It sounds a little bit weird because it is an rather old expression but you can still hear very often. I would translate it with 'Don't mention it'

Best regards Angel
