"Books have been written about me."

Translation:Bücher wurden über mich geschrieben.

Can you say "Bücher würden über mir geschrieben"? Shouldn't the verb be in second place?


The verb can be in the second place (Bücher wurden über mich geschrieben). I think your mistakes were typos, otherwise you created the sentence "Books would be written above me" ;)


Thank you. Yes, that would be a different meaning. (I caught that bit later: I'm still tripping over some prepositions that may be either dative or accusative. Something else to pay extra attention to. ;-)


That is exactly what I wrote, but it wasn't accepted :(
