    Kosten-cost-costs

    [Wirtsch.][Substantiv]
    Quellen

    The question to native speakers is:

    When to use "cost" and when to use "costs".

    cost and costs exist in the descriptions in both variants (singular and plural).

    Translation is always the German "Plural". e.g.:

    to cut costs - "Kosten reduzieren".

    at my cost - "auf meine Kosten"

    costs additional to the freight charges - "zusätzlich zur Fracht anfallende Kosten"

    I'd hazard to guess that there's no hard and fast rule about this one... do you have a specific example in mind?
