What are the best Quran translations in German, French & Spanish?

I am not a speaker of any of those languages but I do want to know which translations to give to native speakers.

Which ones do you recommend?

Preferably ones translated by Muslims, if not Shia.

If you no spanish users answer, I see that on Zeeshan Zaveri's site, he is selling two different ones, though from what I can tell, they are both the Julio Cortes translations, you'd have to imagine that there is a good chance that that is the translation he would recommend.

The shop on the 'La Casa del Profeta' website:

As you can only see the covers, without the name of the translator, I did a little search, they are both Cortes translation:

There are at least five translations in spanish, listed on the Online Quran Project site:

About the french one, I've never read it, but when I've had to translate verses, I found the Jean-Louis Michon translation to be the best, though it was only when comparing very few verses, also I see that he has translated ملك يومِ لدين as King of the day of Judgment...so perhaps it isn't the best. Furthermore, I doubt that he is muslim

I think I should ask the people on that site for their opinion. Some people say that the native Spanish speakers do not like the Cortez translation.

Thanks for the reply :)
