    There are probably other possible translations. Someone in a previous thread suggested 'jmdn. auf die richtige Spur bringen,' which also sounded okay to me.

    For the record, it's a separable verb, so it can be either 'tip so. off' or 'tip off so.' -- don't know if my angle brackets will show up or not.

    for the record: LEO has
    tip-off - confidential information given to so. chiefly (Brit.) [coll.] --der Hinweis
    anonymous tip-off chiefly (Brit.) [coll.] --anonymer Hinweis

    @hm-us: the existing entries are flagged as (Brit.). Does that seem right to you?

    Hmmm ... if I say yes, will I be contradicting myself? I have a vague recollection of a previous discussion on exactly that point.

    I think in AE we more often say just 'tip,' but I'm not sure I'm prepared to swear to that absolutely. One moment ...

    Aha, I think this is it (unfortunate that the hyphen seems to have prevented it from coming up in my search for 'tip+off'):

    Siehe auch: tip-off - (anonymer) Hinweis

    I think I still agree with myself there, but I'm open to discussing it again if need be.

    There's also this one:

    Siehe auch: tip-off - ... war ... verpfiffen worden ...

    and this one, which was linked to in the first 'tip-off' thread, but I can't get it to open at the moment so I don't know what it is:

    Kontext/ Beispiele
    558 for "einen Wink geben"
    388,000 for "einen Tipp geben"
    97 for "einen Tippgeben"
    286,000 for "einen Hinweis geben"
    Unterstuetzt fuer Tipp und Hinweis.

    Geht es nur mir so, dass "Wink" in diesem Zusammenhang sehr altmodisch und gestelzt klingt. Nicht, dass es falsch ist, aber ich wuerde es definitiv meinem passiven Wortschatz zuordnen. Also vielleicht einen Eintrag mit [rare] auf der deutschen Seite, um die D->E Uebersetzung drin zu halten, aber zu vermeiden, dass es fuer E->D gebraucht wird.

    Oben die beruehmte Google-Statistik. Bewertung, wie man will.
