Yes, there are some people which prefer their native language and/or
can't speak english good enough.

One of the reasons for me to write the page in german, was that the
beginning of the page was a special "german problem": the
"programmer's chars" like {}[]\ are hard to reach on a german
keyboard, because the umlaut keys take the places where on an english
keyboard you'll find those {}[]\ chars. So english speakers don't have
this problem. In the meantime I have also added other useful tips
which might be interesting for non-english users too and I'll take
your advice and will translate the page (or at least a short version)
to english. I'm just looking for a cool way to call Vim (or other
editors) fast from any application. When I'll have found the solution
I'll update the page and will also make a translation. I'll post an
announcement here.

Greetings from Cologne
