meaning of “lauten”

Hey man!
I have seen the word ‘lauten’ banded about a lot here in Germany, in particular with regards to accessing codes or opening times. What does it mean? And is it a direct replacement for sein or means something different?

(originally asked by TheHillma… thank you)

  1. Someone in forum had the same question and I gave an answer there:

    My answer is the one on the bottom with no votes :)… but don’t think it’s bad… I just gave it kind of late so I think that’s why I got no votes.
    And by the way… it is definitely not a word of spoken German… I never use it and I super rarely hear it… so don’t dig too deep, it is a waste of time :)
