Hello @ll,
if you have installed
LibreOffice 3.5.0rc1 
Build-ID: b6c8ba5-8c0b455-0b5e650-d7f0dd3-b100c87
under Debian Testing AMD64 (but others on the Germanophone ML has confirmed it with other distros as well), you see a tilde instead of a mnemonic ... :(
Examples are
1. File - Open (in German " Datei - Öffnen")
2. File - Print ("Datei - Drucken")
3. Tools - Options ("Extras - Optionen")
In the first two dialogs you see "~Abbrechen" instead of "_A_bbrechen", as it should, in the last one there is an "~OK" instead of an "_O_K"
I think this looks really ugly and should be fixed before the release of LO 3.5 final ... ;)
Sorry for any inconvenience

P.S.: If needed, I  can attach some screenshot. But then I have to make them first ... :( And if you think, this bug is using the wrong component, feel free to change it ... ;)

Fixed in Pootle, it was in vcl/source/src.po. As I'll take files from Pootle, and push them to git tomorrow for LibreOffice 3.5 rc2, it will be fixed, unless someone reverts my change. Please reopen, if you see this in rc2.
