# ellipsis in German quotation marks

What's the right way to typeset an ellipsis in German quotation marks?

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[ngerman]{babel}
\usepackage{mathtools}
\mathtoolsset{mathic=true} %%% See https://tex.stackexchange.com/a/3496/
\begin{document}
Terme schreiben wir in Anführungszeichen "\dots"'. %or "\ldots"'
\end{document}


produces, when compiled with pdflatex,

Terme schreiben wir in Anführungszeichen „… “.

What's the canonical way to get rid of the space between … and “? Surely, we can write something like

\kern.1em\textellipsis\kern-.12em


, but the kerning amounts would be guessed and might not be portable when you change font families.

• "\dots\unkern"' might be worth a try, but what exactly 'looks right' is a matter of taste. – moewe Mar 4 at 12:58
• How is the mathtools stuff relevant to this question? mathic only applies to $$...$$ – daleif Mar 4 at 13:13
• \dots and friends are defined via amsmath, which is loaded by mathtools. – daleif Mar 4 at 13:26
• mathtools does not change any dots. – daleif Mar 4 at 13:39

One way could be to cancel out the kerning after the ellipsis with \unkern. I got the idea from browsing the csquotes documentation to see how csquotes handles its ellipsis.
Terme schreiben wir in Anführungszeichen "\dots\unkern"'.
