Können Sie es vorübergehend reparieren?

English Translation

Can you fix it temporarily?

Unterschied zwischen vorläufig und vorübergehend:

  • “vorläufig” means a quick solution to bridge the time until you can deliver the real solution
  • “vorübergehend” means it doesn’t last forever, it too will pass at some point in time (for example, “we have closed for the holidays, but we will re-open and be back in two weeks”)

I’d say that “vorläufig” is the more appropriate word for this sentence
