[vlc-devel] Re: Updated german translation

Hello again,
I've send my translation to another german Mac OS X-User who is very 
familiar with human-interface-guide-lines and has often good ideas for 
improving the usability of the translation.
Thus, I've to change something in the translation, so please commit 
this file and not the previous.

He (I'm speaking from Norbert Rittel, who some of you already know) 
found also two small bugs:
1) The "Playlist" entry in the Window menu toggles the drawer's state 
so it should have a check mark next to it when the drawer is visible!
And if you can implement this behavior for the playlist it'll be great 
to have the same for the Controller itself as well: Meaning that the 
item toggles the visibility of the Controller window (Apple's DVD 
Player does it this way).

2) In the English UI of VLC 0.6.0-test3 one item in the Video menu 
changes: "Screen" (when inactive) and "Video Device" (when submenu 
active). Should be "Display" in both cases as this is the term Apple 
uses in the System Preferences.

There is also an idea from me to improve the interface:
The key-caps for faster/slower are currently cmd-[ and cmd-]. This is 
no problem with the us-keyboard, but the german users have to press 
cmd-option-5 or cmd-option-6. This is not really comfortable and not 
easy to find for normal users, because [ and ] are printed on the 
keyboard (and sometimes it doesn't even work, because you have to press 
option-5 before you press cmd). It would be nicer if we would use 
something like cmd-shift-up-arrow for faster and cmd-shift-down-arrow 
for slower.
