Is your hovercraft full of eels?

If so, Omniglot may come in handy. Omniglot's useful phrases are entertaining and the language-related proverbs interesting, both for the differences and the commonalities.

The German items look right to me, with the exception of "Ihre einzugiges Angebot," which I don't think makes sense. So they've done at least part of their job right.

In the proverbs, I'd translate "Die Sprache verkleidet den Gedenken" as "Language disguises the thought" rather than "Language clothes the thought."
