    Übersetzung korrekt?

    Bear in mind that you've an appointment. - Vergiss nicht, dass du eine Verabredung hast.


    Bear in mind that you've an appointment.


    Vergiss nicht, dass du eine Verabredung hast.

    Beispiele/ Definitionen mit Quellen
    i have talked to her - i've talked to her => ok.
    i have an appointment - i've an appointment => not ok.
    is the contraction given really correct? i would assume that "i have" only may be contracted to "i've" if "have" is an auxiliary verb.

    you've got - you have


    Sie haben

    I agree - using have as an auxiliary verb, you could say "don't forget that you've got an appointment", otherwise it would have to be "don't forget that you have an appointment".

    So it wouldn't be okay to say "I've no idea"?? I don't think so...
    In writing I'd generally avoid it, but in speech I'd say it's perfectly alright.

    Way back when at school we were taught not to use contractions in writing, unless it is direct speech (between ".."). It is always OK when spoken. Don't know if things have changed.

    I believe that this may once again be a UK - US issue.

    While it's true that "...you've an appt." would be rare in the U.S., I believe our cousins in the mother country might not agree. Any Brits care to comment here?

    I think this'd be rare in UK as well. And I'd guess it's more common up north, and definitely in Ireland.
    While it's true that one should generally avoid contractions in written language, their use in personal letters/emails (i.e. when it is like a written representation of spoken language) is perfectly acceptable.
    A standard-issue Brit is supposed to say "I've got" to denote possession; leaving it out is not always wrong.

    I have heard this as part of a longer sentence such as "I can't come today, I've an appointment later on at the doctors", although I agree with Ghol - probably more common in Ireland than the UK.
