Hm, at least I would be very confused if I read suddenly about "diese
Funktion" and "notwendie Angaben", I would wonder which function is
meant and which statements I now need to make. Reading about "Optionen"
and "Soundkarte" suggest clearly what I need to specify now. But feel
free to use what you like, it was simply a suggestion, which can be
ignored.

Because you didn't translate the word "try". In the english description
it's obvious that you can try to leave the field blank and see if it
works. The german translation instead says that I should leave the field
blank and see if everything works. So the english description points out
that the user only can try this but maybe still needs to pass an option,
which is not obvious in the german one.
