Gamification – was ist das? Eine vielversprechende Möglichkeit, sich einem unklaren Begriff einer fremden Sprache anzunähern, ist ihn zu übersetzen – was in diesem Falle überraschend selten geschieht. Wo es der Fall ist, wird meist von „Gamifizierung“ geschrieben, gerade so als wolle man sich vor der Bedeutungsfülle des deutschen „Spiel“ hinter dem scheinbar präziseren englischen „game“ verstecken.
