Another question on passive
Thanks again for the help with my previous question.
I would be grateful if someone could help with another question on the passive.
If I want to write the following sentence;
‘I am paid by my company ‘
I’m not sure whether the ‘company’ would be classed as a ‘person’ and hence use ‘von’
Ich werde ‘von der Firma’ bezahlt
or as an ‘object/instrument’ and instead use ‘mit’
Ich werde ‘durch die Firma’ bezahlt
I’m guessing the latter sounds more probable but would appreciate someone’s expertise in ensuring the correct translation.
