Compare English and German UI

Steps how to reproduce [Reproducible] with parallel installation of  "LOdev   -  ENGLISH UI / German Locale  [Build ID:d6579884752c298a18b7cdfcc7d1614b55c9c7c)]"  {tinderbox: Win-x86@6, pull time 2012-12-06 02:46:58} on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) with own separate User Profile:

1. Launch LibO wiht German UI from LibO Start Center Menu 'Tools -> Options -> 
2. For Comparion, Launch LibO server installation of same version with english UI 
3. Compare

You will that the menu structure is identical until 'Security'. Behind that you will find 5 Items in the English UI, but only 4 ones in the German UI. There is no Item for "Personalization. So from now on in German UI the Menu item strings do not match with the function:

Darstellung (=Appearance) leads to 'Personllization'
Zugänglichkeit (=Accessibility) leads to 'Appearance'
Erweitert (=Acvanced) leads to 'Accessibility'
Online Update leads to 'Acvanced'

Function 'Online Update' can not be reached

I see the same in Spanish UI, I think all translated UI are affected.

@Rainer, this is a temporary problem, translations are out of sync. We had this problem in earlier versions (in 3.3 for sure), later I prevented it by filling language sdf files with en-US strings, when a translation was missing. Now sdf files are no more, so we need a real fix in l10ntools.

@Tamas, this is what we were talking about today, missing list item translations lead to visible UI errors.

Definitely a cross-platform issue -- also reproducible with on Mac OS X (10.6.8, Intel), with German langpack installed.
