Is English the same as in Dutch? Is "Print out a document" used nowadays instead of "Print a document"

Dutch knew thre: "Een document afdrukken", "Een document printen" (anglisism), or "Een document uitdraaien" (from those old boxes with forms that had holes for a tractor.

I am utterly annoyed by the zillion of people the say "Een document uitprinten". YUCK!

Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn

    I think it is the same. But, i also think although in some sense redundant, the term is not truly redundant.

    A printer prints a person prints out, unless the person is a living printer and rolls the ink from his fingertips. :) Normally, the out is inferred, hence your irkage (?).
