English to German translations [PRO]
English term or phrase:to browse
It is computer language, so I guess it's used in German as well?
Explanation: Yes, but we normally only see the noun "Browser" in German. The verb "to browse" means blättern or durchstöbern or durchblättern or grasen or umschauen which is what we do with Internet sites.
Microsoft Fachwörterbuch says "blättern"

Explanation: As far as I know, in the context of Windows, browse is used in the English version where the German says "Durchsuchen", for example when selecting a file to be opened, a program to be run, etc...

Explanation: Hi there, I think if you really want to put it in German you can use "Blättern" or "Durchblättern", but as with many computer terms or other technical terms, they can be left untranslated because they are most commonly known. What you can do is put the German alternative in between brackets for those who really don't understand it.
