Power Words in german

  • I’m using Rank Math on a german site and it seems you don’t catch any german words. for example “new” 0 “neu”, “neue”, “neues” etc. doesn’t get caught. How can this get resolved?

  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math, and sorry for any inconvenience caused.

    We have an internal list of German translations of these power words:

    I can suggest that you translate the most catchy power words from our suggested article.

    I hope this helps. Looking forward to helping you.
    Thank you.

    How do you translate “new” then?


    New is included in the list of power words that are listed in this link:

    New would be translated to Neu


    I hope this helps resolve your issue.

    But it doesn’t catch “Neu” – if I include “Neu” in the title, there is no change.


    Thank you for following up.

    May I know if you’re using a translation plugin on your website? Also, could you provide a screenshot or record a video screencast using a tool like Loom showing the issue and edit the first post on this ticket in the designated Sensitive Data section.

    Hiya! I’m not using a translation plugin, but I noticed what the problem is.

    If I write a sentence with the word 2neu2 in it, it does indeed catch it as a powerword, but if i write “Neu:” (as in “New: 7 tricks to translate a word”) it doesn’t. So it seems the “:” is the problem.


    Yes, that could be the problem.

    We are working on improving this so please bear with us in the meantime.


    same happens with other words as well, e.g. “crazy” in german is “verrückt” and typing “verrückt” is caught by the plugin. But if you write “the crazy person”, this would be “Die verrückte Person” and then it isn’t caught , because “verrückte2 Soesn’t get recognized.


    Thank you for following up.

    We’ll keep this in mind and as my colleague has noted above we’re working to improve this feature.

    In the meantime, let us know if you need help with anything else.
