I know. When I saw this, I immediately changed it back to
"Installation." But unfortunately, the update does not get through. See
my post "Update of sysexts".

Well, the problem is not the German translation but the use of template
for very different things in the English original. In the case of HTML
files that the content is mapped to, template and Vorlage are fitting
100%. As for the TypoScript templates, that really doesn't fit, and
thus this applies to the German translation.
As for being accustomed to something, well, I'd rather make one big
change and people can get accustomed to the new than keeping something
that is plain wrong or "Denglish."
