Ich Bin Ein Auslander?


Pro-tip: Instead of dropping the diacritics on vowels (turning e.g. 'ä' into 'a'), you can always just write it out by appending an 'e'. "Auslaender" is equivalent to "Ausländer" in the public understanding.

Trivia: A lot of older German gamers/geeks including myself actually don't write umlauts (ä, ö, ü) in their German online correspondence because they grew up playing games or using systems supporting only ASCII, so they got used to writing them out this way. When I do official paperwork I actually have to remind myself to write them.

(I know it's the song title, but hey, why not go for a TIL opportunity when it presents itself?)
