In many languages there is no direct translation, as the idea expressed by the English adverb is expressed by a prefix in many languages. German is somewhat half way in-between as it uses a prefix in the infinitive of its verbs, but often, though not always, separates the prefix into the same form as the English adverb when conjugating them.
- Dutch: usually expressed by the prefix uit-
- Esperanto: usually expressed by the prefix el- and/or preposition el (1), ekstere (2)
