In lesson 12.1, in the introductory conversation, the following sentence is presented:
Aber zuerst muss ich noch eine wichtige Entscheidung treffen. The translation is: But first I must make an important decision.
The verb treffen, has already been introduced and defined as to meet. However, in this sentence it is defined as to make. A check in Google Translate confirms the translation but it doesn't make sense given the definition of the word. Can someone explain why a decision is different from other things one might make and instead of making it one apparently meets it in German?
