In the Writer menu "Form" there is the menu item "Activation Order". But the corresponding dialogue is called "Tab Order". Shouldn't the dialogue also be called "Activation Order"?

This is not a problem with the translation into German or another language. In the source strings there are used different terms for the same thing (See attached video).
Set Component back to UI.

I know; of course. But questions are
Why is the problem not visible in Italian / French and may be other languages?
Will corrections in the English Source mangle UI in other languages?

Because the Italian and French translation teams translated both words with the same term. Other teams have translated the source code verbatim.
> Will corrections in the English Source mangle UI in other languages?
Yes and no. If a source string will be changed the teams have to translate the string with they own translation again. They choose how it should be translated.
