I agree - the outgoing messages should not depend on the session language and this a feature definitely needed for larger installations in an international environment.
However, I still feel the need to exclude the informal German translation from our installation - while this is indeed a nice option in certain settings (you should keep it in OwnCloud), it is not appropriate in an "enterprise context". As long as cleanly deleting/choosing translation versions is simple, I do not mind at all doing it manually.
