Sie Haben Ein Deutsch Worterbuch?

If you can translate the subject above, then you may continue. Or at least go buy a German to English dictionary.

For whole website translations, I usually use, and click on TSail, but here, it didn't work so well...

You can use: to translate the text. Babelfish will will also translate webpages, but only one at a time.

First, Mercedes' website is

When you get there, click on the tab at the top of the page marked, "Dialog". You will then have a page open that allows you to contact MB.

En Deutsch: "Was können wir für Sie tun? Wählen Sie bitte als erstes aus der folgenden Liste das passende Thema Ihrer Anfrage aus. Dann landet Ihr Anliegen automatisch beim zuständigen Ansprechpartner."

In English: "What can we do for you? Select please as the first from the following list the suitable topic of your inquiry. Then your request lands automatically with the responsible partner."

There are four categories available to you:

"Bestellen Von Prospekten" - Order Brochure
"Anfragen" - Inquiries
"Fragen An Die Redaktion" - Question for the Editor
"Beschwerden" - Complaints

Chose one of these, and click on the button below it marked, "Weiter" - Further. The other choice, "Fenster Schliessen" means Close Window.

Then you will get to a page where you can enter your contact information. Unfortunately, it's set up for people living in Germany, but you can always leave your email address.

For instance, the top of that page in German: "Selbst Fehler haben ihre gute Seite: Man kann aus ihnen lernen Fehler kommen vor. Auch in unserem Hause. Schon unsere Unternehmensgründer Karl Benz und Gottlieb Daimler hatten vor dem Durchbruch mit erheblichen Rückschlägen zu kämpfen. Aber: Sie haben aus ihren Fehlern gelernt und nach neuen Wegen gesucht.Wir folgen diesem Grundsatz noch heute. Bitte zögern Sie deshalb nicht, uns Ihre Reklamation zukommen zu lassen. Wir verstehen dies als Chance, noch besser zu werden."

Becomes: "Even errors have their good page: One can learn from them Errors occur. Also in our house. Already our enterprise founders Karl Benz and God-dear Daimler had to fight before the break-through with substantial setbacks. But: They learned from their errors and after new ways gesucht.Wir to follow this principle still today. Please you do not hesitate therefore to give to us your complaint. We understand this as chance to become still better.

For fun, read the English translations to yourself while thinking of Dieter, or Hans & Franz from Saturday Night Live.

Gutes Glück, mein Freund...It is now time on Schprockets when we dance!
