Summary0001041: German version of new point calculation inconsistend in use of "Sie" and "Du"
DescriptionOn the new calculation of assurance points in the german version of the web system I read:
"Sie haben bereits 192 Personen assured und sind damit auf Platz Nummer 35 der Top-Assurer.
Du hast 57 Assurances erhalten. Du bist somit auf Rang 0000026 der Top Assurees."

German has two versions for the word "you" - "Du" and "Sie". "Du" is the more personal one, "Sie" is the more formal/polite one.

It sounds very strange if you mix the two. So I think there should be a general decision which one to use and that should be used everywhere.

Generally "Du" is used almost everywhere. I have fixed the translation on

Maybe we need to create translator style guides for each language
