german quotes for a well-known python typographic library

This is a first quick hack to get correct german single and double opening and closing quotes. Mnemonic:

9 Word 6
99 Word 66

These are, to my knowledge „/„ for opening double quotes and “/“ for closing ones. ‚/‚ for opening single quotes and ‘/‘ for closing ones.


  • add other german typographical specialties (em/en dashes between dates, number ranges etc...)
  • make it international by providing all the correct defaults based on the user locale.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
