I did report those, but the resistance on the on the debian-i18n-de mailinglist made me gave up on this. Werkzeugkette (toolchain), Veröffentlichungsziele (release goals), DSAs, subversion depots (translating repository (which is used in the official translation of the svn book) with depot, which is no german word as well), etc. were too much for me. There were quite some more, though I have to admit, now that I took a very brief look at the page in german again, that it looks a bit better now. Though "Entfernte Privilegien-Eskalation" (remote priviledge escalation) is still... not something I want to read personally.

So, yes, I think it has become better. Thanks to those of you working on it. I appreciate it, as I know many german speaking people have problems understanding the english pages. But I do have problems understanding the german site and yet I want to browse the rest of the web in german, and this is not possible with the current webpage.

Those are two different problems, and you dont fix one by fixing the other.

I think you're not alone with this problem, as it's quite common among people who are in advanced level in a profession and learnt it together with English terminology. Translators always try to establish national terminology, which might help beginners but confuse experts. In Hungarian translation of w.d.o we try to keep the balance between English terminology and Hungarian neologism. Other translation projects don't do so, that's why I also prefer reading IT-specific websites in English.
