mortgage calculator: Hypthekenkalkulator?
losher
German translation:Hypotheken-Rechner o.ä.
Explanation:
a "mortgage calculator" is obviously something to calculate your mortgage as you can find it e.g. on a website.

Your direct translation is right but does not sound great. What about:

Hypothekenrechner (mortgage calculator)
Hypothek Berechnung (mortgage calculation)

Hope that helps...

Hypothek Rechner, Hypothek Berechnung


Explanation:
Since it is a term for a computer utility, I think that you should translate it without the hyphen.


Hypothek Berechnung, Diese Berechnung steht nur für die Kalkulation der ersten
Hypothek. Dieses gilt nicht für die Berechnung einer Neufinanzierung ...

Translated into English:

Mortgage calculator:

See Bloomberg's mortgage calculator at:http://www.bloomberg.com/money/loan/mtge_calc.html

This will make it perfectly clear for you I think :)
