Thanks for the pointer.

If no-one objects, I'd like to discuss the changes before reworking or
reverting the changes; there has been another change in the meantime.

I changed:
"Interpretierer" to "Interpreter",
"Webplatz" to "Web-Site",
"Verwalter" to "Verwaltung" where it refered to, e.g., a site manager
                            folder as opposed to the user with manager

The latter two of these do appear in the dictionary, but I'd like to
propose changing them there as well. "Webplatz" is not otherwise used in
my experience (but correct me if I'm wrong) and is only a partial
translation anyway. "Verwalter" may be correct to the letter but feels
strange to everyone I was talking to, both in real life and on #zope.de.
