Recommended techie websites -- in German?

Wed Mar 26, 2014 11:04 pm

I'm trying to pick up German in a more casual way. Any recommended techie sites what are written in Deutsch?

As a side note, http://dict.tu-chemnitz.de has been my online dictionary. It's a pity it does not seem to have a mobile version though.

If hardware reviews are what you're looking for, you can start by misusing the Austrian price search site, http://geizhals.at/eu. Pick a popular piece of hardware. Among other info, you will likely find several links to reviews (Testberichte), most of them in German.

http://geizhals.at/eu/gigabyte-ga-z87x-ud3h-a950962.html

Apart from that, http://www.prad.de is a respected site for monitor reviews and has some of their (lengthy) articles in both German and English. Same for http://www.tomshardware.de and http://www.tomshardware.com. (I realize it's not the most beloved site among TR readers but, well, language learning might be a good excuse to mention it.)

http://www.computerbase.de/
http://www.pcgameshardware.de/

Computerbase.de is the biggest one AFAIK, both sites have big forum communities. I'm pretty sure there's another one that is more focussed on overclocking but the name escapes me atm.

Haha, techreport.de exists too. At least for Porsche drivers.

The only German tech site you'll ever need: http://translate.google.com/translate?h ... ort.com%2F

Thanks all, much appreciated.

www.heise.de is another one I just remembered. (I recall the had/have an English Linux page.)

Firestarter, if you think of the other one, please do let me know.

Kind of funny there would be a Porsche page at techreport.de.
