a comment on the domain DuckDuckGo.com for the language German of Germany 2 years and 8 months ago
*Du versus Sie*
I am inclined to vote for Du for the time being
because it brings with it a feeling of intimacy, of a lack of formality, and of the youthfulness of the internet. In the long run, however, I think Sie is the only adequate form of address, considering that DDG
wants to live up to its aspiration of being a serious competitor.

"Links to -- or screenshots of -- corresponding parts of the website" ... Marvellous proposal.
All for it!

Admitted.
I am afraid that the bulk of the manpower being offered is getting lost due to out-of-the-context translations which are often beside the mark.

According to DUDEN, the term scrollen is an admissible term,
to advise the cherished user, "Tun Sie dies und tun Sie das" is good as well,
however, to me to simply direct his/her attention further down the page "Weiter unten (finden Sie...)" is more concise and elegant.

The Translation in use - %s ist besser als %s -
in the sense of "Ein Auto ist BESSER als ein Fahrrad
ALS Fortbewegungsmittel" ------>"Ein Auto ist BESSER ALS
Fortbewegungsmittel" is okay.
The tokens "DDG is a better search engine than Google"
and "DDG is BETTER AS a search engine"
are okay as well.
