Yes I know, I already see the same problem with the english text

How about splitting the partman-auto screen into two? First a question on
the method to use (e.g. "Perform an automatic installation using LVM") and
then a screen to select the device (e.g. "Format and use IDE0 master -
Maxtor 46L489 for installation")? Perhaps the two should be shown in
reverse order?

I used "crypto" as it was the shortest text I could come up with :) If we
do come up with a solution to allow longer texts in that menu I could
change it  to be a bit more descriptive.
