afaiu it's perfectly ok to use "to voice" in English as this is the term
used by organ builders.
some quick googling gives me e.g. [1] and [2].
for the german translation "intonieren" see [3], which is a bit more
specific to the organ context than the generic "Intonieren" wikipedia
page you linked to.

so upstream seems to have chosen this term intentionally in order to
stress the professional quality of the synthesiser.
i think we could keep this ambition in all translations (including the
english one).

oh my, "his" instrument? this should be changed to a gender neutral form.

cheers (and thanks for doing the translations)
