Does anyone know where to find an (official) Google style guide for translations from English to German? I didn't find one on Google.
Here's a helpful one in Spanish, FYI:

I've worked for Google for years, and have never seen a style guide. But I'd have thought a lot of the Spanish one would also apply to German, except tu/usted would become du/Sie. If you're not sure, why don't you ask them?

Thanks for the Spanish guide Emal. The short introduction states that, maybe, they will provide other ones in future for other languages, so it must be their first one. Perhaps you should look for one which is not by Google. If I find one I´ll post it in this forum.

Thanks for the link.
I'm not sure I understand why an (official) Google style guide is to be found under the name of one (apparently) of its workers!icon_eek.gif
