Dictionary of Consumer Terms

Simple language

The dictionary explains the most important terms from everyday consumer life in simple language. It is not intended to be a legal dictionary in which legal issues are explained in detail. These explanations do not replace legal advice.




About the project

The nationwide project "Strengthening Consumers in the Neighbourhood” gives the Baden-Württemberg Consumer Advice Centre the chance to do outreach consumer work for the first time in its history. Low-threshold support services specifically address those consumers who could not be reached so far. Isabella Glott und Marika Jgerenaiawill be on site in Neckarstadt-West - on neighbourhood walks, with information stands and at local festivals. Language barriers are also to be overcome and information offered in different languages. We speak Flagge Deutschland German, Flagge UK English,  Flagge Rumänien Romania and Bulgarian Flag Bulgarian.

The aim of the project is to strengthen consumers and make them better informed so that they can recognise dubious scams themselves and make the right consumer decisions. In addition, the neighbourhood workers see themselves as guides who can help to find the right contact person for all problems. Networking with the neighbourhood management and other players in the quarter is therefore an important part of their work. The multipliers in the area can benefit from the referral structure and the various training schemes on very different consumer topics.
