Yes, we should make your translation available. I think, that the Wiki, 
where the English versions are already available, will be a proper place.

The document uses the wrong template. That has the effect, that it has 
the wrong language and wrong font size. The correct template is in

How to handle copyright and license is described in the mentioned template.

We should avoid the impression that this translation is authorized by 
ODFAuthors (former OOoAuthors). If such authorization is wished-for, the 
document would have to go through their revision cycles. Therefore I 
think, that at least the OOoAuthors logo and text in the footer on page 
2 has to be removed.

The document would need a proof reading to look for typos and wrong 
links. But because it is for the outdated OOo3.2, I think we can take it 
as it is. For AOO4.x the printing part has to be rewritten, because the 
printer dialog has changed after OOo3.2.

Currently the Wiki does not react, so I cannot look for a proper place. 
But I know, there exists a page for the English version. If no 
DE-section exists, I suggest to add a line to that page, saying 
"Translations" and in next line "Heiko Strauss hat diese Anleitung nach 
Deutsch übersetzt." with "Deutsch" as direct link to the document. 
Perhaps add the full German title. This way it can be found by search in 
Internet and by search inside the Wiki.

Kind regards
