German to English translation
« on: August 01, 2020, 06:52:12 AM »
I am not certain if this is the right place to post this and I am a little embarrassed to ask but I don't know where else to turn. I bought Größentabellen for Herren-Oberbekleidung (size charts) from MÜLLER & SOHN last year but have lost my German from a brain issue. Is anyone willing to help me translate this into English.
Thank you in advance,
Jeffrey

It should be Ok.

What year is it from? In terms of copyright isuues?

I am guessing that a translation will not be allowed.I bought it last year so it is most likely under copyright still.
I was thinking I would only translate the names of the charts and the words /names of the measurements. I have tried using google translate but I get the oddest translations.
Thank you for the reply anyhow.

"get the oddest translations"
That reminds me of trying to translate leather shorts from German to English, maybe a couple of decades ago. English has some roundabout words too. Never did finish it. Any Trouser pattern will work with a few adaptations for style. Did lots of hiking and thought leather might be better (more durable) than cotton for summer hikes. Leather Trousers of all lengths go back hundreds of years throughout Europe and the Americas.
