[Mailman-Users] Question about language of the admin interface

Hi all again,

I found a complete translation to German in the directory 

In mailman-2.1.1/messages/de/LC_MESSAGES/mailman.po is translated to 
German already.


# Mailman/Gui/NonDigest.py:28
#: Mailman/Gui/NonDigest.py:34
msgid "Non-digest options"
msgstr "Non-Digest-Optionen"

But I get the "Non-digest options" instead of "Non-Digest-Optionen".

Is this a bug or do I have to enable something else that
