If you are uncertain, stick to the following rules:
- Common Mandarin should by translated into common high German.
- Aim for the one precise translation - you should decide if if a word means "suddenly" or "unexpectedly", etc.
- Formal language should be translated into formal language, colloquial language into colloquial language. Dialects can be translated into dialects, but do not have to. If the best translation is ambiguous or hard to understand, include a second translation for the same meaning.
