- Übersetzungsfehler.com - Das Gruselkabinett der Übersetzung. This is a great site by an Austrian colleague, a collection of real-life horrible translations, from and into German and English from around the world. A great example of what not to do!
- The Austrian Dictionary (in German).
- Redensarten . Redensarten = expressions, and here is a great collection of German expressions and sayings.
