Forum Rocket German German Vocab Das Treffen vs Das Meeting

Das Treffen vs Das Meeting


I just checked these two words with a dictionary, but I get to the same meaning. Are they interchangeable or should one of them be used in a specific situation?


Hallo RexV, 

Treffen is used for informal get-togethers or family meetings. Meeting is only used for business meetings in Germany.



Super, thanks for the answer!!!

When would you use the word “Sitzung”?


And when would you use the word "Beschprechungen"?
