German Signage

9 posts in this topic

Probably not realistic but I'm making a diorama for my SAS Jeep and want to have a "Keep Out" sign.

What would a Nazi "Keep Out" sign read? My best Google translate came up with EINTRETEN VERBOTEN.

I'm hoping a German speaker may be able to confirm.

 

Many thanks

Ian..

More likely 'Eintritt verboten' or 'Betreten verboten.' Both are common usage.

Cheers

You didn't give a context. 'Betreten verboten' would be closer to a general 'Keep out!' 'Eintritt verboten' would be closer to 'No admittance' or 'No entry.'

I can't resist... wouldn't that mean you have to break wind twice? 😁

Thanks Thorfinn.

The context is an SAS jeep storming an Airfield in Tunisia  (sounds way more exiting than my Dio :( )

I'm sure their airfields wouldn't have been encircled by a barb wire fence but mine will be, I envisaged a military sign saying "keep out" Possibly with a Luftwaffe logo above, but rather than fixing it to a fence post I fancied having it being driven over by the jeep.

A plain dessert sand base just didn't excite me.

That sign will keep German speakers out.  Are they the target audience?

Your right dcrfan, I did say it probably wasn't realistic and suspect if any sign did exist it would have an Arabic translation, but thought trying to write that would be a bit beyond me.

When it comes to signs, use translate then enter the text into search box and select images. You're almost certain to find a suitable image.... save, then reduce to required size and print.
