    sanft modernisiert

    [Schweiz]
    Sources

    Aus einer Broschüre für einen Hausverkauf:


    "Dabei wurde sanft modernisiert und Antikes bewahrt (z. B. Abschleifen und Ölen der Originalböden, Renovation Einbauschränke etc)."

    Comment

    Was ist damit gemeint? "sensitively modernised / smoothly modernised / gently modernised"? Hat jemand einen Vorschlag?

    sympathetically modernised -

    e.g.without ripping out all original features

    hanks for the further suggestions. I appreciate all the suggestions. I think laalaa's "sympathetically" is spot on and went with that. Have a great day, all! :-)

    Ja, 'sympathetically' ist in der Tat der Begriff der Wahl.

    Ah, was gelernt....


    Aber zum Deutschen würde ich sagen, dass ich 'behutsam modernisiert' eher kenne.

    Sympathetically is absolutely the term used in BE.

    As to 'sanft' - well, is Swiss REALLY German??? :)

    @John_2: For one thing, "sanft modernisieren" is by no means Swiss German (wrong tag), and for another, Swiss German is, of course, genuine German. Why shouldn't it be?

    Rodos, I can't be blamed for the wrong tag ... and it was a joke anyway (I thought that was clear), by way of a response to #7.

    Swiss German is, in some ways, quite an outlier among German dialects.

    Don't worry, you're in good company. Applying the "Austrian" or "Swiss" label to any unfamiliar word(ing) is a familiar reflex of Northern Germans.
