    Handwerksbetrieb, Handwerksberuf, Handwerkskunst, etc.
    I know it's been discussed more or less ad nauseam, but wouldn't "artisan" fit the bill when it comes to all things related to Handwerk(s)*?

    I haven't yet run across a translation using "artisan" in any of the usual places, but "handicraft" and "craft" aren't always great choices in the contexts I've run across.

    Any thoughts?

    Würdest Du z. B. einen Handwerker wie den Maurer (bricklayer) oder Klempner (plumber) unter den Begriff "artisan" ziehen? Ich nicht.

    Das hier gehört vielleicht besser ins LEO-Sprachlabor: https://dict.leo.org/forum/previewGeneraldisc...

    Mad, you're right. I probably should have specified the context(s) a little more. I'm still thinking, though, that it would work in certain cases.

    And thanks for the Sprachlabor tip, too – I'd never seen that before!

    Handwerk = craft, trade, craft trade, craft industries
    Handwerksbetrieb = craftman's business
    Kunsthandwerk = arts and crafts
    Handwerker = workman, (gelernter Handwerker = artisan)
    Kunsthandwerker = craftsman

    Not easy to get around those terms. :-))

    Unless, of course, you talk about "artisan breweries and artisan brewskis"

    Helmi, that's a great quick list there – thank you!

    And not to belabor the point, but something like "Kunsthandwerk" was exactly what I was thinking of when considering that "artisan" something might be occasionally fitting. Although obviously technically correct, I consider arts and crafts to be something I did in Girl Scouts or summer camp rather than a way I'd describe an adult hobby/profession/skill...

    Artisan breweries, though, I'd agree with all the way, on several levels. :-)
