  2. Localized presence on sales platforms outside of Germany (for example, ebay.fr or amazon.it)

Or when you use other ways to present yourself internationally, for example through:

  1. Websites
  2. Corporate blogs
  3. Forums

FAQ

wissenswertes

Can't I just translate my German legal texts for international use?

The temptation to use translation software for foreign legal texts is often great. However, this is not advisable because even small errors or inaccuracies can lead to legal disputes. If you want to use our international legal texts, it's easy: they are available to Unlimited and Professional members in the legal text editor alongside the German legal texts.

For which sales platforms can I use the international legal texts?

We provide legal certainty for more than 50 sales platforms - including with our foreign language legal texts. Whether it's Manomano in France, Abebooks in Italy and other specialty platforms, or the subsidiaries of Amazon and eBay, we provide legal texts for EU-wide trading. In addition, we provide legal texts for Amazon.com, created according to US law.
