Oops, yes your're right. And I checked the discussion-page of v1 I still 
got on my local pmwiki v1 installation:


pagenames / usage of wikiwords - different approaches:

1. keeping the original english pagenames, when offered as a link, it can 
be displayed with german text using the format:
[[EnglishPagename german Translation]]

I think a nice topic of this solution is the possibility of removing the 
"De" in the pages URL (e.g. ".../wiki/PmWikiDe/Installation") to get the 
original one. So you could easily switch back and forth between two 
languages.  [KAL]

I would prefer this method to the next. Advantages: No need to find a 
translation that fits (or if to translate the pagename at all); easier to 
refer to other pages that might not even be translated yet (simply refer to 
the english page instead - change to the translated group name as soon as 
the page is translated). mkie

2. using translated wikiwords (like it's done on the french translation, 
e.g. see: PmWikiFr.Documentation Index)


so that was the reason to keep the original names. But now I think it's 
better to use german pagenames and have a link in the reference text to the 
english pagename (the green text).

On that discussion-pages there are other points as well, may be I should 
copy them to the new diskussion page.

I only worked on the translation of the v1-pages, haven't had time for the 
v2 translations.
