🙏 How do you say "Please" in German?

- As part of a demand like ”What’s the time, please?” the equivalent in German is ”bitte”, thus the closest translation is: ”Wieviel Uhr ist es, bitte?”, likewise ”Wie spät ist es bitte?”, where ”spät” doesn’t mean verbally ”late” or ”too late”.
For other reasons and other situations also the forms ”bittesehr” (presenting an article to a customer e.g.) or ”bitteschön” can be used as more humble or polite and may be replied with
”dankesehr” or ”dankeschön”.
