    Das stammt aus einer Software, wo das n als Platzhalter steht. Wie wird das korrekt übersetzt? Damit ist mein Amateurspatzenhirn leider überfordert, wer kann bitte helfen?

    Vielen Dank!

    nth adj (sometimes nth) 1 denoting an indefinite position in a sequence • to the nth degree. 2 denoting an item or occurrence that is many times removed from the first in a sequence • I'm telling you for the nth time. http://www.chambersharrap.co.uk/chambers/feat...

    Phillipp, I'd say "The bill is to be paid on the nth day of the month", mainly as "xth" is pretty impossible to pronounce :-) What are your objections?

    Phillipp: But Angela's software doesn't use "x-ten", etc. We're talking maths here, I would have thought, where n is an unspecified or variable number.

    Okay, you've got me in a double half nelson or whatever it's called, I submit ;-)
    (As for the pronunciation of "Xth" ... I have no problems, I can even say it backwards, if the reward's right ;-).)
