If we have a look at questions tagged german-english we get an idea of what is welcome, and what not. In most of these questions the then is appropriate.

The more we put the focus on issues with understanding a German expression, and the less we can find e.g. collquial expressions or phrases in common dictionaries, the more likely we will be prepared to give answers here. This is even more so as understanding some of these need some deeper insight into the German language and usage indeed.

This is not always the case. If we ask for the best English expression of an otherwise well understood German counterpart German Language & Usage will not be able to provide a really good answer. In these cases I do believe we should close a question and for the sake of a better answer should direct people to:

If we asked for the "best expression for a German idiom in English" we probably get better answers there, as this would then be asking for an appropriate English expression.

There is and always will be some overlap but we should take care to draw some line here.
