German translation:microsite
Explanation:
Hier ist die Erklärung aus Wörterbuch Informationstechnik und Medien: "eine eigenständige und von der eigentlichen Web-Site unabhängige kleine Site, die meist Werbezwecken dient."
Ich denke man würde diesen Begriff nicht übersetzen.

Microsite - since my German media dictionary doesn\'t translate it, but gives a definition instead, I would think it would be safe to leave it untranslated.
