There is no loss in translation here. Proper English requires the use of 
a question mark just the same as German, but you can't assume proper 
English will be used on a forum of communication like this one. The OP 
stated his problem, and maybe he doesn't know enough English to actually 
ask his question (I'm guessing by the name "Sumant Gupta"). I don't 
believe you are native speaker yourself, and I would've expected more 
sympathy from you. Lord knows I hope the recipients of any German I 
write will have some.
