Non-discriminatory language

You can also find information discriminatory language on the webpage "Migration-sensitive counselling".

The Neue Deutschen Medienmacher*innen [New German mediamakers] explain in their glossary the meaning of key words that arise in connection with integration in the German media and are used in everyday language. In doing so, they highlight the differences between the individual terms and the extent to which they have a discriminatory effect. In addition, alternative terminologies are named that are intended to counter discrimination. The glossary is constantly updated. It can be viewed online or stored in PDF format. In addition, the glossary is available as an app or can be ordered as a print version.

Gender-neutral language

Gender-neutral language includes all people, regardless of their biological sex, ethnicity or identity. It is thus inclusive rather than discriminatory and exclusionary. The website provides a dictionary of alternative gender-neutral terms. The site also provides tips for rewording and advice on how to avoid discrimination when formulating texts. You can also find information on this on the webpage "Gender sensitivity".
