You are welcome in German ??
Hi ! How to say you are welcome in German. I searched Google translate but it wasn't right ( something told me that translation is wrong ). Help me please! Danke schön !!
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!"
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
