Sie benötigen Anweisungen.

English Translation

They need instructions.

Anweisung - gedruckte Anleitung (Quelle: Duden)

The Duden is wrong. It doesn’t have to be printed.

“Anweisung” simply means instruction or order. It can (in both meanings) also be used as a verb: “jemanden anweisen”.

  • to guide someone through how it’s done
  • to tell/“order” someone to do something

Example:

  • On New Year’s Eve, the father told his child to not let the cat out.
  • An Silvester wies der Vater sein Kind an, die Katze nicht heraus zu lassen.
