#1110 closed Bug report

German translation (seite!=site, seite=page)

Description

The german translation of the term 'site' is
inconsistent and misleading.

In the current version "site" is translated using the
words "Server" (which is obviously not the same as
site) and "Seite" (Seite is the german word for page!)

Somebody may construct some word like "FTP-Präsenz".
But this word is not in use, it sounds ugly
untechnical, and it is longer and more complicated than
"Site".

Since there seems to be no german word for the term
site in this context, I suggest to use the word "Site",
which is frequently used by german-speaking people.
