I'd argue that internationalization should include English as the source
base language and German and other languages as a localization. Because
it is written in German from the beginning it means that one will be
required to translate the whole thing to English, marking strings for a
translation, and then prepare the German translation for marked strings.

Not only comments, but also identifiers (such as variables, class names
etc) should be in English, they are currently in German . I hope
translation and renaming will happen soon, so that I and other
volunteers can be able to participate in the project.
