Yes. The actual po-files for german have some errors (mainly wrong
%-statements). I corrected them locally and will try to add these
corrections to translate.koha-community.org.

Now things are ok :-)

But I would suggest to add a warning to the upgrade section of the
INSTALL.<os>-files. Something like:

* Turn your koha to english before upgrading.
* Install your needed languages before opening the staff-page the first

I had my koha-installation switched to german.

After the upgrade-process the display was broken because of the
old/missing german files.

Because the po-files were corrupted I couldn't install them.

Koha became unusable till I had fixed my po-files.

Thank you for your hints. They lead my on the right path. :-)
