German Translations...

For the curious people who wondered what my timer said.

Okay, remember:
 "ie" is pronounced as a long "e" and "ei" is prounounced as a long "I" .... "w" is pronounced like our "v".... and "v" is our "f"... "ch" is a "kuh"(soft sound) and "j" is our "y"...and "ä" is "ae" then there are the "S" which sound like "Z"  oh, and German "Z"s are our "ts" sound...(I'm sure you'll catch on, this isn't German 101)
