    Default 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

    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

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

    The word in German is "Gestalten"

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

    Translation gestalten in German-English dictionary

    Does that help?

    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
