Well, I'm not really a translator but I happen to be able to understand
german, although not always really understanding Germans. ;) Germans really
do like abbreviations, but to me that is mostly more confusing than helping.
Maybe that is just because I have to memorize dozens of germans and english
I always wondered about the w in the english native version as well as about
the + in the translation. Now you posted this I finally get it. :D Is it
really so crucial for the length of a message string that you can't just
write "wonder" or "built" in it? Though I don't really see why this info text
is particulary necessary anyways, as this particulary piece of news is the
very reason of the message itself. I would like to see it only in the
production info or progress bar as "available" ("verfügbar") or "built"
("gebaut"), but that would mean some more work for all the other language
