"Macht es frei" is still proper High Geman, it's more like saying something in a different way.
Slang and dialects are part of the German language, but they are far from the proper High Geman. Example: if I said "Oeffnen Sie die Tuer" in my dialect, I would say "Mache Se de Daer uff". SOOOOOO, dialects are different in every region and as much as a 30 minute drive could get you into another dialect area where you only understand about 50% of the spoken words. Each dialect of course has it's own slang for certain groups, sooooooo the possibilities are endless......Source(s): German is my first language
