Is there a general translation for this???

Thanks

Explanation:
I much rather prefer "in German speaking contries" than "in the German language area" - it sounds stilted to me.
Do a quick literal internet search for each phrase and you'll see that the latter phrase is used far less frequently.

Cheerio,
Dierk
