    Default In the FRAME of something

    Is it acceptable to use
    "in the frame of something"
    instead of
    "in the context of something"???

    Example:
    "In the frame of the interview the reporter asked some unpleasant questions"

    Thanks in advance for your answers.

    Default Re: In the FRAME of something

    No. "Frame" would be a Germanism. I would prefer to translate "im Rahmen" simply as "During" or "In the course of" in this particular sentence.
