Q: Was ist der Unterschied zwischen : (colon) und ; (semicolon) ?
A: A colon is usually used preceeding a list, or for example. Like here, for example:

I need to buy: Carrots, potatoes, bread, cheese and milk.


A semicolon is not used regularly, and is mainly only used in literature or academic writing. It is similar to a period as it separates sentences, but in a way that the two sentences have to be related but could stand on their own. For example:

Slow down; he's just woken up.

Here 'Slow down' and 'he's just woken up' can both be separate sentences, but as a stylistic choice you can use a semicolon as they are still related.

Some examples where you wouldn't use a semicolon:

'He had just woken up. Clara was not in the bedroom.'
Here the sentences are not related enough, so you use a period.

'He woke up, got out of bed, and looked for Clara.'
Here 'got out of bed' and 'and looked for Clara' cannot be on their own as sentences, so you use a comma.
