Dear madams and sirs,

the German translation of 'tail' has a formatting error when reporting
that the PID to be monitored is invalid. The English version is correct.
export LANG=""
tail -f --pid=aaa /dev/null
tail: invalid PID: 'aaa'
export LANG="de_DE.UTF-8"
tail -f --pid=aaa /dev/null
tail: %s: ungültige PID: „aaa“

The %s should not be there.


Thank you for looking after great software.
Mark Roberts

Indeed thanks.
The source of that file is the translation project,
CCing them and closing here.
