1.) I noticed that the web shortcut en2de is defunct. 
Here's the message on the target page: 

"We are sorry to announce that WordReference.com has decided to 
drop the English-German dictionary.  Collins has decided that they 
prefer not let WordReference offer their dictionaries online anymore, 
and we were unable to find a good replacement. 

For those looking for another online dictionary, 
we recommend dict.leo.org/ or www.dict.cc . 

Our apologies."

I suggest removing the shortcut completely as there is already 
a useful replacement in the leo: shortcut.  

2.) LEO now has support for French <-> German lookups 
How about adding a shortcut leofr:?  

What do you think? 
I'd volunteer for both tasks if the feedback is positive.  

Should the modifications also be done in the 3.3 branch? 
And is there a maintainer for the web shortcuts I should send 
the new file to for review?
