Checkliste vs. Prüfliste

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Imho, the point is not, which one is used more often. This indicates nothing. "Und" is certainly even more common. This does not qualify "und" as a valid equivalent of any Englisch term.

Finding the broadest semantic overlap (within all regions, if possible) would do.

I did not even look for a source :-)

anglicism / denglish These are phenomens when someone uses uncommon words often in doubtful meaning amid German sentences

I mainly disagree. Which is irrelevant. "Checkliste" is a onomasiologically a compound of an English and a German word, but semntically, it is not a compound, since "check" is not used alone in German.

Translation is all about most unambiguously matching meaning, not about how often a word or synonym is used somewhere in an arbitrary context. Otherwise Google Translate, Bing translate, and others were not so devastating failures at some simple sentences over years.
