  1.   Hi John G and anyone else reading this thread,   How can you be registered in HH without living there? Here in Berlin they are querying exactly this because my son lives abroad but is still registered at his/our flat in Berlin. Are there differing regulations for different parts of the country? Can anyone clarify this situation, particularly with regard to Berlin? That would be a great help.   Cheers and advance thanks for information.    
  2. ' Evening all,   I've been ordered to sell my son's nifty bike and checked the ads on e-Bay etc. to see how best to do it. I see that the height is always given - in inches! I'd just like to  find out what exactly does that measurement specify? From where to where do I have to measure to get the height of the bike? It doesn't seem to be from the ground to the saddle, as far as I can tell. Any bike enthusiasts out there with an inkling? That would be a great help.   Advance thanks  for the info. Cheers from cold, damp Berlin
  3. Thank you all so much for all the tips and advice.   I am having the thing overhauled and will put it up for sale as soon as that's done - which means I have time to look up the bike vocabulary and then hopefully measure the right bit when it comes to selling it.   Thanks again everyone, that was a great help.
  4. Bleeding a radiator

    Hello all,   I have a technical question: Does anyone know whether radiators have to be on and warm when bleeding them? Advance thanks for useful answers.
  5. Bleeding a radiator

    Thanks Krieg, that's a big help. I wanted to try it today but thought it might not work because the heating is not on. Now I've got my work cut out for tomorrow. Cheers and happy Weekend - Berlin will probably be sunny. Lucky us!
  6. Bleeding a radiator

    Oh my goodness me I made a boo boo. Sorry Frau Fruit, who'd've thunk there are 'many' existing threads on bleeding a radiator. Please accept my sincerest apologies. Won't happen again.
  7. I've just discovered this - DeepL for Windows, an offline beta Version but worth a try.   Neu: DeepL für Windows Die schnellste und einfachste Art DeepL zu nutzen. Übersetzen Sie Texte in jeder Anwendung auf Ihrem Computer. App kostenlos herunterladen (beta)    
  8. Hi everyone,   Does anyone here actually use the translation software on offer, is it any better than online options e.g. Reverso, Linguee, etc., and are you pleased with the programme you use? There's such a large selection I don't know where to start. Any suggestions are more than welcome.   Many thanks and cheers....      
  9. Goodday all,   Are there any clever people around who know whether Word has an 'insert' symbol? I can't find one in the symbol table and if I ask google it just tells me how to place a symbol into a text, which I am quite capable of doing.   Advance thanks for the info.
  10. 'Insert' symbol in Word

    Mornin' all,   My goodness, that's a whole lot more suggestions than I expected! A big THANK YOU to you all - I shall try them out later today.   Cheers for now....    
  11. onemark - I have just discovered your comment. I find certain contractors don't like their texts being translated online for security reasons which means you miss out on that work. I was wondering if the Pro-Version gives clients a good measure of security/confidentiality which is why I asked Kommentarlos if he had registered.
  12. anne k - I don't really do much translation as such, it's more of a sideline, so I rather think that the memory software you mention is eine Nummer zu groß für mich, so to speak.   Kommentarlos - I use Deepl as well and find it so good I was considering registering for the Pro version. Have you registered at all?
  13. Hi there,   I quite agree, pmd, DeepL is excellent as they translate and offer alternative synonyms. In answer your question, Acton, I wouldn't want to tackle either technical or medical translation, just stinknormale journalistic type texts.   Hmmm, it seems not many freelancers rely on translation software and prefer the online options. Anyway, thanks for your thoughts.   Cheers....
  14. Hi everybody, good morning,   Does anyone here do a regular round trip Berlin to Hamburg and back on the same day? Alternatively, is anyone planning such a round trip sometime soon? If so, would they consider a paying passenger (li'l ole me)? I need to clear up some family business this month and don't want to stay in HH overnight. I know this is a long shot but if there are any offers please PM me.   Cheers and enjoy the sun while it lasts - yes, I know, the heat is killing, but try anyway....
  15. Peanut butter shortage - help!

    Hi there,   If what you want is pure, unadulterated peanut butter try dm Erdnussmus. It really is just 100% ground peanuts with no additives at all and costs around €1,90 for 250 g. The Crunchy version has sea salt, cane sugar and carrageen (I think), so don't bother with that.   Enjoy....
