Ledig vs Verfügbar



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?


I don't know which dictionary you are using, but the Leo dictionary has:

Ledig = single, unmarried, alone, unwed.
verfügbar= available, disposable, spendable, on hand

Verfügbar can be used to say how long a film will be available in a TV catch up service. eg:
Video verfügbar bis 17.07.2019

They are not really the same thing at all.
