Hello Eike,

Good idea about adding the language code to the subject. And I'm sorry to hear
that the German translations had some errors. This was contributed by one of
Swiss german member of the promo team who also speaks Hochdeutsch. I reviewed
it and didn't saw the flaw in it. It is now too late now to change it but next
time I will ask you to review it.
