This article reports on a project in which recent language changes in Business German were analyzed as reflected in the weekly magazine Wirtschaftswoche. The focus of the analysis was the increasing number of lexical transfers from English into German. The wide spectrum of assimilation of these transfers into German is discussed as well as language changes not influenced by English. The article concludes with a summary of the debate on internationalisms in German with emphasis on business German.
