Kreis - district or county?[edit]

Hi Manfred, actually we use both on Wikipedia as per the guidelines and in fact the British Embassy and liaison services in Germany use "county" for Kreis. It is a better term because it is more specific than "district" which is used to translate several different German words e.g. Kreis, Landkreis, Amt, Bezirk, Distrikt, Stadtteil, etc. so "district" becomes a bit meaningless. --Bermicourt (talk) 12:21, 17 January 2015 (UTC)

District is correct according to EU use, NUTS and used by german authorities in official translations of documents ManfredV (talk) 16:40, 17 January 2015 (UTC)

And the EU guidelines also refer back to.... Wikipedia, which is not supposed to be an authority. So the situation is a bit of a mess. Anyway, let's agree that "district" is not wrong; neither is "county". Both appear in the sources. --Bermicourt (talk) 17:47, 17 January 2015 (UTC)

Fürth[edit]

Hello Manfred, I think we should keep Beiersdorfer, because he was born in Fürth and was a player and now is a manager and he has an article in enwiki. Regards--Buchbibliothek (talk) 18:54, 2 September 2016 (UTC)
