    wechselhafte Geschichte

    Quellen
    Context: Hier kann man die wechselhaft Geschichte der Speicherstadt auf einem historischen Speicherboden nachvollziehen....

    Experience the ? history of the warehouse complex in a historic warehouse...

    wechselhaft = changing, varied? Maybe "eventful history"?

    "Eventful" or "varied" sounds good, "turbulent" would probably be a bit over the top...

    @the kat: Thanks. I agree, "turbulent" might be a bit too much.

    if ups and downs are involved, "chequered history" is a common idiom

    Doesn't "checkered" usually go with "past" and imply a certain measure of criminal or at least dubious activity?

    #4: maybe different AE/BE usage? Cambridge Int. Dict. of English "(of person or organization) having had both successful and unsuccessful periods in your past" and Concise OE: "with varied fortunes" - that would fit the Speicherstadt I'd say - the bombing of Hamburg e.g.

    Ich kenne den Begriff wechselvoll für derartige Zusammenhänge, und den kennt auch der Löwe :-)

    Whatever the dictionary says, I don't believe there's such a word as "changeful" in real life. I'd say "eventful" or "chequered" (the latter is explicit that there were bad times, the former isn't).

    The number of hits for "changeful" in the .uk-domain is not overwhelming, but high enough for the assertion that the word exists in real life.

    Oxforddict. führt "changeful" auf und bietet dafür folgende Beispiele:

    "That must be some kind of victory for a man nearing sixty, so long tossed around uncertainly on changeful seas."

    "It is very changeful, offering opportunities for many variations in dwelling and plan type within the same block."

    "We find from Mrs. Fairfax that Mr. Rochester is often changeful and abrupt because of his nature, and also because of family troubles which absorb him painfully."

    Die hier aufscheinende Bedeutung von "changeful" scheint jedoch nicht dem "wechselvoll" von wechselvolle Geschichte zu entsprechen.

    Merriam-Websters Beispiel für "changeful" ("a confusingly changeful attitude toward his so-called best friend") entspricht eher "unbeständig" als "wechselvoll" im Sinne der Historie.

    MWs Student Dictionary hat "changeful" als Synonym von "changeable" (veränderbar, unbeständig, wankelmütig, wechselhaft, wechselnd etc.)

    Ich würde im vorliegenden Fall "eventful" nehmen.

    "wechselhaft" lässt sich auch durch abwechslungsreich ersetzen, also könnte man auch "ever changing history" nehmen.

    Let's see: English native speakers don't like "changeful", German native speakers are endorsing it. Draw your own conclusions! :-)

    Siehe auch # 6.

    Könnte man sagen:
    changeful = wechselvoll, nur nicht in Bezug auf Geschichte?

    (Mir fallen gerade keine Beispiele für wechselvoll ein).
