Down there you'll find three columns with phrases and two-digit codes before them. --- In the first column you'll find actual German phrases (or figures of speech or idioms, I am no linguist), all in the infinitive form. --- The second column consists of literal translations into English (like: what Babelfish would do to them). --- The third column consists of more fitting translations/descriptions of what that phrase (figure, idiom) actually means. --- Your goal is to combine one entry of each column to form a set of phrases belonging together, i.e. a German phrase, its literal and its real translation respectively. You then enter a six-digit code formed by the three respective two-digit codes of each phrase. --- Note: Unlike many sites which make "literal translations" for the rule of fun, I tried to make them at least gramatically workable and use the most fitting word, so these differ from others you may find on the net, which are even more silly. Of course this only holds, where the German expression already made some grammatical and semantical sense to begin with. --- All phrases are actually in usage within the German speaking world, albeit not with the same frequency and with differing levels of formality, so this should be easy for native German speakers. For others - I don't know. Just give it a try.
