Passive voice in present tense
Use the passive voice to emphasize the patient (the thing being acted upon) rather than the agent (the thing acting) in a sentence, by making it the sentence's subject. When the action is taking place right now, use the present tense passive voice. A sentence in present passive is constructed like this in German:
[patient] wird [preposition] [agent] [past participle of verb].
The active sentence "Ich schreibe es" ("I am writing it"), for example, becomes "Es wird von mir geschrieben" ("It is being written by me") in the present passive.
