German braille is usually contracted. For that use German - basic. German Vollschrift is a system of lightly contracted braille that is almost uncontracted. It is used, but rarely. Use uncontracted German if that is what you want.
This language is usually produced in contracted braille. This means that words are not produced in braille on a one-for-one basis. There are abbreviations or contractions in the text. If you have questions about how braille is produced, please contact a member of your local braille authority.
