Well, I agree that it's bad to translate things that are *literal*
names of commands and environment variables. But "Home" is neither.
Thus, the reasonable translation table will be

  home directory            --> Heim-verzeichnis
  $HOME directory           --> $HOME verzeichnis
  HOME environment variable --> HOME umg...

I guess you mean --anzeigegeraet=blah.bloh.AG:0.0  ;-)

(No, I don't know much German, I just had some lessons in school 15
years ago. But translation issues are mostly the same for Swedish).
