    Stand der Dinge


    Comment
    I'm not suggesting "actual" could not be used whatsoever but I do think it makes dangerous allusions to the (very different) "aktuell" in German. I'd definitely find myself enquiring about the "current" state of affairs rather than the "actual" one (which could also imply my asking whether the affairs themselves even existed or not.)

    I'm suggesting an addition of "current" as more common rather than an outright deletion as I know some people might possibly say "actual."
