Manager vs. Verwalter

Jump to navigation Jump to search

ok, since there is no discussion about that the reasoning seems to be accepted. I change the translations from "Verwalter" to "Manager".

To be added: a "Manager" in German has often a very bad connotation. They are overpaid, incompetent, irresponsible, arrogant, encroaching on the rights and competences of their appointhers. A "Verwalter"s as an individual could be all of that, too, but does not normally have these connotations, rather contrary ones.

The English term administrator in the context of computer systems and networks cannot be translated as "Verwalter", only as "Administrator".

Thus I do not see the above choice as a lucky one :-)

What about a more positive Word which stresses the leading function either: "Leiter"? Or, cause of managers relation to projects on iNaturalist, it could be more precise: "Projektleiter"?

I think most would like a role with that name, probably more than "Verwalter" and even "Manager".

I agree that "Projektleiter" appears a very good choice that likely most "Projektleiter"s would like, and very many would prefer over "Manager".
