:oops: could it be missing in the listed idioms??? "to blow one`s own trumpet" surely means to boast about one`s qualities and/or achievements. Having tried the °Translator" earlier, it came up with something like "Sie sollten Ihre eigene Trompete (nicht) blasen" - What happened here? Can I rely on translations covering the meaning of the idiom, not translating word-perfect??? :? :?

Hi Allison,

Yes, idioms are always a bit problematic for automatic translators – although I understand they’re getting better.

I think it’s worth pointing out though, that, as folletto’s reply showed, the English/German dictionary includes a reasonable number of idioms.

e.g. searching on ‘blow your own trumpet’ results in;

Eigenlob stinkt! fam = don’t blow your own trumpet! prov”


searching on ‘blow trumpet’ gives that too and;

to blow one's own horn [or trumpet] = sich akk selbst loben

auf die Pauke hauen fam (angeben) = to blow one's own trumpet fam


while searching just on ‘blow’ also gives sich selbst loben (under Wendungen) http://de.pons.eu/dict/search/results/?q=blow&l=deen&in=ac_undefined&lf=de

Hey all,

Here in the U.S., at least in my experience, we tend to say "toot" one's own horn, and we often use the expression as follows: "I don't mean to toot my own horn, but ... "

Take it easy,
