Flag_of_Germany.svgThanks to german business student Oke Warnholz the Business Model Architect tools will be available in German soon. I have received the translations and look forward to start working the online and print versions in German.

The translation process is always a good occasion to look closer at the terms and descriptions on the cards. Getting the titles right require a good explanation.

For example we had a good conversation about the translation of Economy (under Price Level). We were considering German works like Günstig and Billig that both refer to an affordable price, but the last indicates poor quality – cheap in other words. We ended up with the word Preiswert after discussing what Economy actually meant.

My discussions with Oke  Warnholz made me think, that maybe I should offer you a few examples on this website…and maybe in the future on the cards as well…
