at the top of your document: 
\usepackage[german]{babel} % although others may have a different 
                           % opinion about that.

then use `" for the start quote and '" for the end quote.

If you like it, why switch? I think there are a few packages out there that
show you how to do this. You can even have TeXShop display the results
(configure for external editor). Do a search in the list archives.
