    Hallo Forum,

    wie gehts? I am doing my Unit 4 German exam in 3/4 weeks time and I need some help with my translation. Please could you have a quick glance over it and let me know if its correct

    PS. I did not use any dictionaries (cant use them in exams)


    Many people think that scientist have too much power. Medical research is nesccesary, but nobody knows exactly what the risks are. Stem cell research, for example, seems to be successful. Howver, it could be linked to human cloning. Most people think this is not ethically justifiable.


    Viele Leute denken dass Forchers haben zu viel macht. Medizinische forschung ist notwendig, aber niemand weisst genau was die Risikon sind. Stemmzellenforchung, sieht erfolgreich aus. Jedoch, es konnter zur Klonen von Menchen verbunden sein. Die meisten Leute denken dass es ist nicht ethisch vertretbar ist.

    Good job on the vocab, especially considering you didn't have a dictionary You do need to watch your grammar though, as there are several basic errors.

    Some things I noticed :

    - verbs go at the end following dass : viele Leute denken dass, Wissenschaftler zu viel Macht haben / die Leute denken, dass es nicht ethisch vertretbar ist.
    - conjugations : niemand weiß
    - verbs should be in the second position : jedoch könnte
    - plurals : die Risiken

    My German's not brilliant either but I'd suggest something like :

    Viele Leute meinen, dass Wissenschaftler zu viel Macht haben. Medizinforschung ist notwendig, aber niemand weiß genau, was die Risiken sind. Zum Beispiel scheint Stammzellenforschung erfolgreich zu sein. Allerdings könnte sie mit dem Klonen von Menschen verbunden. Die meisten Leute glauben, dass dies nicht ethisch vertretbar ist.
