this is not an error but intention. From Git 1.8.4, the German translation
switches from pure German to German+English. For me the most important
reasons for that are that terms like "Branch" and "Tag" are well-known SCM/Git
terms for many German people, and using "Zweig" and "Marke" could be more
confusing than just use the english words. It's not just these two
words, but also
terms like "remote-tracking", "index" and some such. The second reason is to get
closer to books. The books I know do not translate Git/SCM terms, e.g. the
Pro Git book [1] and also books you can buy on a store. I think it's better to
read the same terms in Git messages as you read in books.
