Well, then please state so. But usually, we would not review previous
translations *unless* there is a reason so. And 6 years is, by my
experience for German, not a big time. Our last othography change was
around 20 years ago.

Translations time is a really scarce resource, and shortly before a
release many projects ask for translators.

And then plase send the previous translations to the translators,
because a review is *much* easier than a new translation. Or did you
intend to compare the two translations? You probably cannot do so as a
non native speaker.
