Note to whoever committs this: just commit it, my comments are mostly
small issues or typos. Those can be fixed later on.

Hey Simon,

I reviewed your goodies.diff, I find you are doing a very decent job
despite you saying you're not experienced. :)

+"Share name too long. Some old clients may have problems to access it,
" +"continue anyway?"
+msgstr "Der Freigabename ist zu lang. Einige ältere Programme könnten
Probleme haben, auf die Freigabe zuzugreifen. Möchten Sie trotzdem

I think it should be 'Freigaben*n*ame' (cf.'Kerze*n*halter').

+#: ../libshares/libshares-util.c:254
+msgid "Cannot modify the share:"
+msgstr "Freigabe kann nicht bearbeitet werden:"

Article missing.

+#: ../libshares/shares.c:162
+#, c-format
+msgid "%s %s %s failed for an unknown reason"
+msgstr "%s %s %s schlug mit unbekanntem Grund fehl."

'*aus* unbekanntem Grund'

+#: ../libshares/shares.c:219
+#, c-format
+msgid "the output of 'net usershare' is not in valid UTF-8 encoding"
+msgstr "Die Ausgabe von »net usershare« ist nicht nach UTF-8 kodiert."

Possibly '...kein gültiges UTF-8.' to retain the *valid* here?

+#: ../thunar-plugin/tsp-provider.c:129
+msgid "Manage shared folders..."
+msgstr "Verwalten Sie ihre freigegebenen Ordner..."

This should be 'Ihre'.

Note that the headers of the new files are not quite right, see
http://i18n.xfce.org/wiki/team_de for the template.

+#: ../panel-plugin/xfmedia-remote-plugin.c:712
+msgid "_Add track(s)..."
+msgstr "Dateien _hinzufügen"

Missing trailing periods.

+#: ../panel-plugin/props.py:46
+msgid "RSS Feeds:"
+msgstr "RSS-Feeds:"

I think this should be 'RSS-Verteiler'.

 #: ../src/extended-interface.c:406
 msgid "translator-credits"
-msgstr ""
+msgstr "Namen der Übersetzer"

This is not correct, 'translator-credits' should contain the names of
all translators, ie. it's not a normal translatable string. It's a
common mistake, though, so don't worry about it :)

 #: ../src/preferences-dialog.c:204
 #, fuzzy
 msgid "Use _default system settings"
-msgstr "Benutze systemweite Einstellung"
+msgstr "Benutze _systemweite Einstellung"

Please preserve the plural here.

 #: ../src/preferences-dialog.c:334
+#, fuzzy
 msgid "%D: Disc"
-msgstr ""
+msgstr "%D: Dics"

This looks like an accident. I'm guessing this should be 'Datenträger'
but I might be wrong out of context.

+#: ../panel-plugin/xfce4-mpc-plugin.c:247
+msgid "Host : "
+msgstr "Host: "
+#: ../panel-plugin/xfce4-mpc-plugin.c:248
+msgid "Port : "
+msgstr "Port: "

Should be 'Leitrechner' and 'Anschluss' me probably.

+#: ../panel-plugin/xfce4-mpc-plugin.c:411
+msgid "Mpd playlist"
+msgstr "Mpd-Playliste"

Should be 'Mpd-Wiedergabelist' as used in other strings.

+#: ../panel-plugin/xfce4-mpc-plugin.c:649
+msgid "Maintainer, Original Author"
+msgstr "Entwickler, Originalautor"

This feels odd. If actually the developer is meant here please file a
bug about the original string. Otherwise 'Betreuer' would be more

+#. translation note: "Blank <disc type>" (e.g. "Blank cd-rw")
+#: ../panel-plugin/cddrive.c:231
+msgid "Blank %s"
+#. translation note: "Audio <disc type>"
+#: ../panel-plugin/cddrive.c:240
+msgid "Audio %s"
+#. translation note: "Eject blank <disc type> from <drive name>" (e.g.
"Eject blank cd-rw from cdrom1")
+#: ../panel-plugin/cddrive.c:293
+msgid "Eject blank %s from %s"

These are broken original strings, luckily all possible media I can
think of have the same gender in German.

Would you mind filing a bug?

I'm seeing a few places where you didn't translate disc.

 #: ../panel-plugin/clipman-dialogs.c:177
 msgid "A_dd selections to the history"
-msgstr ""
+msgstr "Auswahl zur Chronik _hinzufügen"

Should be 'Auswahl zum Verlauf _hinzufügen'

#: ../panel-plugin/wavelan.desktop.in.in.h:1
 msgid "View the status of a wireless network"
-msgstr ""
+msgstr "Status des *K*abellosen Netzwerks anzeigen"

Typo, should be 'kabellosen'.

+#: thunar-svn-plugin/tsp-svn-property-page.c:141
+msgid "Repository:"
+msgstr "Repository"

Should be 'Projektarchiv', that's what command line tools use.
