Well dont know if necerdarry but i translate this topic in english. Currently translations splitting up suggesting "Du" and "Sie" for the english "you". They are both right translations (explained below). Both are possible and have there advantages and disadvantages for DuckDuckGo. This discussion is suggesting to clarify what for shall be used for translations.

"Sie" is a formal adress you use for strangers, in formal business language or for people you are not very close to. For example a doctor would use "Sie"to his patients. "Du" is less formal and used and indicates a good relation to the person you adress. It also makes a more warm and relaxed atmosphere. For examle 2 friends would use "Du".

A context is needed here! "Published by MyCompany" means "Herausgebracht von MyComany" aber "sort by date" means "Sortiert nach Datum". There is not one right word "by" in German. There are several words for it depending on the context
