    Hi, the English term 'to cotch' basically means to chill/prang out... does anyone have a German translation??

    Where does it mean to chill? I've never come across it before. Can you give us a tad more detail? As for prang out the mind boggles - am I just showing my age ;)?

    The reason might be it jamaincan origin, I guess it is not comon in the US or UK. Anyway here are some German youth speakesque terms, that express the same thing:
    "chillen", "gammeln", and as mentioned before, "abhängen"

    Yea cotch/prang out usually refers to having smoked weed and then chilling, but in this context it is merely chilling, thanks guys

    Well, I've never come across it either, so if even I'm too old for this word, there must be some weed-smoking toddlers about, which wouldn't surprise me at all nowadays.
