Explanation: European Directives are rendered as Richtlinien in German, and they are either EWG (EEC) or EG (EC). If you do a search on the number of the respective directive together with the word Richtlinie, you will most likely get the official German text, if you need it.
Explanation: In addition to the first answer you have received you may wish to check the Official Journal of the European Communities Website (=Amtsblatt der Europäischen Gemeinschaften). You can search for legislation in all of the official EU languages to get the correct titles (and content of course) of EU legislation, be it Directives or Regulations.
