    creation

    Hi,

    could you please tell me whether it is possible to use the following project title:

    Lifelong learning, creation and self-development

    I mean especially the word "creation" standing by itself.

    Thank you very much.

    Hanka

    Re: creation

    I'd say creativity (creativeness) if you mean what I think you do...

    Hello, Hanka.

    Could you tell us a bit about what creation means here?

    Ex: Lifelong learning, creation and self-development

    Re: creation

    It is probably about making (creating or producing) something, like values, because the text is about company employees.

    The word in German is "Gestalten"

    Re: creation

    In that case, I'd go with creativity too.

    Translation gestalten in German-English dictionary

    Does that help?

    Re: creation

    Hi again, I think the word creativity means the ability to create. So if the author wants to say that the company has the abilities, I would use "creativity". This sentence seems to be a bit different (at least I feel it that way). I think the author talks about the creation itself, not the ability to create. Lifelong creation = you will keep creating something your whole life. I feel it this way, I hope it will help you. p.s. please check your private messages, I sent you one a while ago
