    But why the Handwerkskammer if they don't do nothing?
    As they don't seen to benefit from their work directly this questions is asked by some.
    Handwerkskammern have the statutory supervision over the Innungen which take the technical task of organizing the apprenticeships and certification of masters. They in a way do all the paperwork involved in this. And they, beside other duties, protect the interests of the trades vs the state.
    Most of their tasks are such that otherwise the state would have to care for them and must be paid for by taxes. Our society has decided, by appropriate legislation, to let the trades look after their own affairs but to take care that the job is done, thus the mandatory membership for all shop owners. In a way or the other it is done that way for about six hundred centuries or even more. May be besides the Christian churches Innungen and Handwerkskammern are the institutions with the longest tradition in Germany

    Thank you very much for your help,

    Do you know where the Kunstlersozialkasse fits into all of this?

    As I get it right the Künstlersozialkasse is state-subsidized to enable artists to get a health-insurance of their own adapted to their low income.
    But you can also be health insured at a common Gesetzliche Krankenkasse with regards to a very low income. But in case of artists they likely will advise to apply for insurance at the Künstlersozialkasse.

    Here is a new online dictionary, very different from everything else:

    http://www.linguee.de/

    It uses "the web as a dictionary", e.g. it shows where people translated german into english or vice versa and therefor comes with millions of examples.

    I tried this today for the first time, and I am very impressed, it helps a lot.
