Dear Mr. May, You said:" Ja, natürlich Hans ist nass". However, it should be: Ja, natürlich ist Hans nass". Kind regards, A German.

yeah... but "double clutch gearbox" is way more easier :D which translates into "Doppel Kupplungs Getriebe"

If you are trying to make a lightweight car, that name isn't it. The badge alone will be a whole kilogram.

Well it is German compound word and they are English. English has a heavy Germanic base so it should be decently easy to figure out in some way. If you break it down using basic English thinking as to what the words are it is likely: Doppel Kupplungs Getriebe or Doppel Kupp Lungs Getriebe I'm guessing the first. Doppel is Twin or Double. Kupplungs I would guess is Coupling Getriebe I'm not sure about. But I'm assuming in the context it is gear box. so a Twin Coupling Gear Box I would guess. Now put into context you can make some changes. Coupling is likely Clutch as it is in a compound word about a gear box. As such in English it is a Twin Clutch Gearbox or a Twin Clutch Transmission. Which I bet if I looked up the word is very close to what it is. German can be often translated into English with a little context

Side note: You won't find this word in any german dictionary. It's 3 different words, Doppel, Kupplung, and Getriebe. Im german, you can add words together. It means Double Clutch Transmission.
