#959 closed Bug report

german translation is wrong

Description

In the german translation the english word "site" is
translated to the german "Seite", which is wrong. It
only looks similar (site <-> Seite).
"Seite" is the english "page".
It is difficult to translate "site" to german. The
normal translations doesn't fit the meaning of the
internet term "site". An FTP-site is best called
"FTP-Server" in german. "Server" is very common and
don't need to be translated. There is also not a very
fitting translation for "server".
If you really want a good german translation for
"FTP-site" that fits the meaning, you could use
"FTP-Zugang", which would be more like "FTP access" in
english.

I switched my Filezilla to english because this
translation really hurts my brain ;) I didn't check any
of the remaining translation but this "bug" is the most
prominent.

Please upgrade to the latest version of FileZilla. There won't be
support for outdated versions.

OMG, this answer is just stupid.
I filed this bug almost a year ago and now it is closed
because the version is outdated. Of course it is outdated if
it takes so long to review a bug.
Instead of pointing to new releases and closing the bug it
would be wise to check the new releases. The bug or false
translation is still there.

That means it has been fixed in the new version.
