Because with a German keyboard the keystroke combination STRG+; and STRG+SHIFT+; isn't possible (";" is SHIFT+,), I changed the keystroke to STRG+. and STRG+SHIFT+. in Calc and Writer.
But until a restart of LibreOffice, it wasn't possible to use .uno:InsertDateField/.uno:InsertTimeField in Calc and .uno:InsertCurrentDate/.uno:InsertCurrentTime in Writer with the same keystroke combination.
When I added the keystroke combination to Writer, it was going ineffective in Calc and the description name changed to the uno name. When I added it to Calc, the same happens in Calc.
Can someone reproduce this behavior?
And another issue: If I change the UI from German to English, no keys are added to the above mentioned commands. It's not visible in the Customization dialog and it doesn't work. When changing back to German it works again and is visible in the Customization dialog.

Then it would be good to have this fixed by default for German (bug 82117), as we did with other languages (bug 88027).

@Heiko: Can you repo this?

Please file this in another bug report, but if i had to guess, i would say this is not a bug, as it is assigning the shortcut to the set locale (german), just like we've set particular shortcuts per locale in Accelerators.xcu.
Calc knows .uno:InsertCurrentDate ("Insert Current Date") assigned to Ctrl+; but this command is not available in Writer where only .uno:InsertDateField is possible. The latter has no shortcut assigned in Calc because that makes not much sense because this command is possible only in edit mode.
IIRC the field menu was introduced recently in Calc, at least we discussed the edit mode.

I apprehended that. So I won't file a new bug.
I tested the date/time issue with a new profile in version 184.108.40.206. You can test it with every locale you want, it's always the same result.
Steps to reproduce
1) Open Writer, go to Tools > Customize... > Keyboard
2) Assign "Date" to Ctrl+. and "Time" with Ctrl+Shift+.
3) Close the dialog and test it in Writer
4) Don't close Writer and open Calc, go to Tools > Customize... > Keyboard
5) Assign "Insert Current Date" to Ctrl+. and "Insert Current Time" with Ctrl+Shift+.
6) Close the dialog and test it in Calc
7) Don't close Calc, go to Writer and test it again
Ctrl+. and Ctrl+Shift+. don't work anymore in Writer.
Writer and Calc shortcut keys shouldn't interfere each other.
When going back to the Customize dialog in Writer, you can see that "Date" and "Time" aren't assigned to Ctrl+. and Ctrl+Shift+. anymore. But .uno:InsertCurrentDate and .uno:InsertCurrentTime are visible in the shortcut keys list in the Customize dialog instead of "Date" and "Time".
So i can confirm the issue and it seems the issue happens for certain shortcuts and can happen with any assigned command. So from my testing, the issue happened with F12, ctrl+. and ctrl+; shortcuts but didnt with ctrl+0, ctrl+9, and ctrl+[.
1. open writer
2. tools > customize > keyboard
3. assign shortcut to 'Date' command under the insert category
4. test it works correctly in writer
5. open calc
6. tools > customize > keyboard
7. assign same shortcut to 'Chart' command under the insert category
8. test it works correctly in calc
9. switch back to writer window
10. test if it inserts a chart
