Any German speakers out there?

Posted by somtam2000 on 20/8/2008 at 06:53 admin

I came across the following about Travelfish on a German website -- if there's a German-speaker who can translate, I'd really appreciate it.

"Von einem echten Marktführer bei den Empfehlungsportalen kann man nicht sprechen. Manche eignen sich nur für bestimmte Regionen, wie Travelfish, die sich auf Südostasien spezialisiert haben, viele andere ringen nach genug Usern, um den ganzen Globus umfassend erklären zu können. Dabei sind alle entweder die "ersten" (Tripflip), "genialsten" (Travelzoo), "the fun way" (Travbuddy) oder wollen den "vollständigen, aktuellen und verlässlichen weltweiten Reiseführer" (Wikitravel, World66, Wikivoyage) schreiben.

... - Social Travel Portal für Südostasien. Neben Tipps, was man mitnehmen sollte, sind auch viele Hinweise zu Hotels und ähnlichem aufgeführt. Hilfreich: Es stehen ein paar Reiseführer mit essentiellen Details und Karten zum kostenpflichtigen Download bereit."

My German is very, very limited so maybe a native will provide a better translation, but just for fun:

"One cannot really say there is a market leader within the recommendation portals. (I assume this refers to sites offering recommendations on hotels etc.) Some dedicate themselves only to certain regions, such as Travelfish which specializes in Southeast Asia, while many struggle to get enough users to be able to cover the entire globe in a comprehensive manner. They are all either "the first" (Tripflip), "the most ingenious" (Travelzoo), "the fun way" (Travbuddy) or want to write a "complete, current and reliable travel guide" (Wikitravel, World66, Wikivoyage).

… - A Social Travel Portal for Southeast Asia. In addition to advice, which one should take along, there are also many tips for hotels and similar listed. Helpfully: A few travel guides with essential details and maps are available for download for a cost.
