The passive in the future tense


When forming the passive in the future tense, werden appears twice as both the future tense and the passive use werden in their formation.Since the repetition of werden is considered to be stylistically inelegant, the present tense form of the passive + an indication of time is often used instead:

Future passive: Das Gebäude wird renoviert werden. →
Present tense: Das Gebäude wird bald renoviert.
The building will soon be renovated.

Future passive: Die Pläne werden besprochen werden. →
Present tense: Die Pläne werden in der nächsten Sitzung besprochen.
The plans will be discussed during the next meeting.
