    How do I write "with reference to" in German?

    You can use, for instance, "bezüglich" + Genitiv.


    Bezüglich seiner Frau...
    (With reference to his wife...)

    Another way is "was (akk.) betrifft":

    Was seine Frau betrifft, ...

    And also "betreffend" (+Akkusativ) and "betreffs" (+Genitiv).

    There are other ways too. But which expression to use depends on the context. Can you give us a context?

    Most literal yet possible: In/mit Bezug auf ...
    Here is a bunch of possible expressions. I think they're interchangeable most of the time.
