Herzliche Gruesse, deutsche Craftsters! I have a translation question for you... First, what's the German word for ATM (Automatic Teller Machine/cash machine) and would this basic construction work (with articles and adjective endings adjusted for the ATM word): "Where is the nearest ATM?"/"Wo ist das naechste ATM"?

I majored in German in college, but that was about four years ago, and I've forgotten nearly everything. My aunt wants to put this expression on a T-shirt (I don't know anyone--American or German--who would actually wear such a shirt, but in any case I wanted to minimalize their looking stupid just a little bit). Thanks for your help. ~Erin

I'm not a German speaker, but I did spend a week and a half in Vienna, and everytime I looked for an ATM it seemed to be labeled "Bancomat". 

Maybe that will work.

the correct translation would be: " Wo ist der nchste Geldautomat?"

You can also use "der Geldautomat" - that's what I've seen in Germany, at least!

I think alot of people just say Automat or Bankomat also, but probably automat, more so.
