Subject Re: Trivial German grammar error on get-involved page.
Date Tue, 10 May 2016 20:22:17 GMT

..."in Deutsch" is wrong (though many people say so, it's probably 
colloquial). The versions "Diese Seite auf Deutsch ansehen" oder "diese 
Seite in Deutscher Sprache" is correct (I'm a native speaker of German).
