View Full Version : Help translating into German

07-21-2009, 06:01 PM

I contacted Heliopan 10-days ago about purchasing an 82mm ND 3,0 filter and I never received an answer.

Based on this catalog (page 12) http://www.heliopan.de/Preisliste.pdf the filter I want does exist :)

Could someone help me write the following text in German, so I can ask again?
Yes, I know about online translators... But they kind of suck...
I would really appreciate your help. Thanks!


I'm interested in ordering an 82mm (screw-in) ND 3,0 (1000x) filter. Bestell-Nr. für Größe: 1082.

Could you ship the filter to California?
What would be the total price including shipping fees?
Do I have to pay the 19% MwSt? And, how do I pay for the order?

I doubt very much that they didn't understand your English; probably they forwarded it on to someone else who forwarded it on to some N. American supplier, who forwarded it on to some dealer.... etc.

Jedenfalls... ;)

Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren,

Ich möchte ein 82mm ND 3,0 Einschraubfilter (Bestell-Nr. 1082) bestellen. Können Sie das Filter nach Kalifornien senden?

Können Sie bitte den Gesamtpreis (inkl. Versandkosten) per Email übersenden?
Muss ich Mehrwertsteuer bezahlen? Und welche Zahlungsmethoden werden akzeptiert?

Vielen Dank im Voraus!

Mit freundlichen Grüßen,

The US rep for Heliopan is HP Marketing. They can get it to you via dealer (there are several in California).

Yeah, I was afraid something like that would happen with my inquiry.
Awesome. Thank you very much!
Thanks Ed,

David, thanks for the info too. I was not aware HP Marketing was the US rep.
In any case, I'll contact Heliopan again.
