Sorry, but please correct this embarrassing error here: “Aber er wollte etwas erschaffen, dass die Messlatte für kreative Designsoftware deutlich höher legen würde.”

“16 Bit” would be better than “16 Bits” there and please stop using the wrong dash together with the correct one on the same website.

I will notify the localisation team. It's only an embarrassing error if we are embarrassed, are you trying to embarrass us? It sometimes feels like you go looking for ways to find fault.

Thanks. And again sorry for reporting.

 

Yes, the first mistake is embarrassing because

1. “dass” is not “das”

2. “dass” does not mean “das”

3. it hinders understanding and reading fluency (because of 2.)

4. in Germany especially this mistake is called embarrassing, because it is characteristic for bad press

5. people who use "dass" instead of "das" write their texts by ear rather than meaning

6. it is not the only error

7. the products are advertised with high standards (especially and also in that sentence); careless mistakes could lead to credibility loss then

8. especially here (“UNTERNEHMEN/Info”): the text quality also has an impact on how a company and its products are valued
