Nice.  If this is possible I will do so.
Thanks for the hint.

Hmmm.  I am a German myself, but I wrote the initial pages of Debian-Med
in English by mostly copy-and-pasting descriptions of the projects
I listed on the pages.

I have to admit that some parts of the German translation are really ugly.
The reason is that I'm a physicist - that means no expert in the field
of medicine - and I do not understand some parts of the Engish version

This is definitely not the case but the German translation is probably not as
full of errors as the English original and thus I'm happy about all hints
and corrections.

If you think there are discrepancies in the content please drop me a note!

Kind regards and thanks for your interest
