what is the difference between saften and juicen?

Saft has added water and sugar (or sweeteners) to it while juice has to be made purely from fruit.

I would translate "saft" to "squash" in general.

Oh, okay....So I'll be safe with saft most of the time

Careful- squash is a gourd

My impression is that saft is more like what Americans call a flavoring syrup, like Grenadine. Americans don't really mix syrup and water for their kids; it's premixed like a can of Crush or Fanta.
