tell [sb] [sth] vtr(inform, convey) (informieren)jdm [etw] sagen Vt
Tell me what he said. I finally told her what happened.
Sag mir, was er gesagt hat. Ich habe ihr endlich erzählt, was passiert ist.

The acronym "jdm" is not in the abbreviation page for German (Dictionary abbreviations). Should it maybe be "jmd"? The "jdm" abbreviation appears in quite a lot of words. If it IS incorrect, perhaps a general sweep for it might be warranted?
