Oops, I forgot it in my last posting: Usually everything specific german - 
translations, account tepmlates, user questions, ... - is discussed on 
gnucash-de, see https://lists.gnucash.org/mailman/listinfo/gnucash-de.
So I will cc this mail to gnucash-de. It should be easier, to answer the 
questions there.
