But wait...
Now I see, where the problem came from. The translator used
"Benutzerdokumente: ..." ("User Docs: ...") for abbreviation reasons 
for the side menu. German words tend to be much longer than english 
words, and there is no common way to abbreviate that.

Wouldn't it be okay in this context to leave "user" away, and to use 
the term for "manuals" ("Anleitungen") instead?
If yes, then I can send you another patch...
