As you probably know some Debian's servers were compromised. After this
unlucky accident every compromised server was shutdown. Not everything is 
working fine since then, because services was moved to replacement,
temporary servers which aren't prepared to support everything in the
same way as main server. Some developers are trying to recover
previous state, but these issues need some time.

It's not human mistake. Debian webpages are generated by special scripts 
from CVS repository which unfortunately is down right now so those pages 
can't be actualized. Some news have been added manually to provide some
information for users about new release of Debian, but not every place 
on site were changed.

Normally when everything (I mean every server) works fine this translations
are made automatically to each supported language. But right now
Debian's pages are provided by its German mirror which isn't configured
to support every foreign language. You've probably noticed that main
menu (this on left side of page) is untranslated too. 

Please be patient. Everything should be fine after recover of each Debian's
