actually, i tried to avoid english terms as much as possible and to remove the deppenleerzeichen found in the existing translations. as an advocate of the old german orthography, i surely would have rather totally concatenated several words into one single word.

i already concatenated "Terminal Reiter" and similar translations to "Terminal-Reiter" and the like (thus even respecting the new orthography rules). 
if you have further ideas to make the translations sound more german, this pretty much reflects my wishes as it also eases usability for non-experienced users.

thanks for help in enhancing the quality of the german translation.


ps 2 daichi: please wait for his translations.
