You most certainly won't find german text in ScummVM - there never
was any, in no version, ever!

It is true that in the past, we did grab some strings from the *game data
files*, instead of hard coding them. So if you played a german version of
a game, you'd see some texts in german (or whatever language your
data files were in). We removed that since not all texts we needed were
present in the game data files, and not all games included translations at
all.

However, scummvm.exe never had german text in it .

german text in scummvm

That is a part of ScummVM 0.6.0, not 0.5.1, more specifically, part of the
Sword1 module.

i see. But would be nice if scummvm would support different
languages in the gui.

I would translate it to german.
