As a native English speaker, I do not see a problem.  To me, a "share" 
is the unit of ownership of a security, whether it is a stock or bond or 
mutual fund.  The link provided shows a difference between stocks and 
bonds, but is not explicit enough that "shares" does not also apply to 
bonds.  I will do more research before wanting to change the English 

To discuss the terminology further, I don't consider that I buy a 
security.  I buy shares in that security.  The first time I buy shares 
in a given security, I do have to add that security to the list of those 
in which I own shares, but when I buy more shares, I don't buy that 
security again.  I'm not sure I can perfectly explain the grammar, but 
the current use seems good.

I will respond directly to the other bug to discuss changing the German
