Just as you can use "Fertigkeiten" instead of "skills" and "Symbole" for "icons".
But you don't have to. Nearly everyone that can install a plugin will understand the english versions for these words.
Thanks, Riggie1000. I am particular about this kind of thing. I will change it to use the German words consistently.

So now I've got
  • Slot 1, Slot 2, Slot 3 → Feld 1, Feld 2, Feld 3
  • 2 slots → 2 Felder

And I attempted to translate this myself, following examples from you, Elrigh, and Google:
  • Bars and groups are listed below. Left-click to rename. Right-click for options. → Leisten und Gruppen sind unten aufgeführt. Links-Klick umbenennen. Rechts-Klick für Optionen.

Correct?

I also have a question about capitalization. Is it conventional in German to capitalize the first letter of all menu items and buttons, even when they are not nouns? E.g. zeigen / ausblenden; linke Seite; waagerecht ausrichten.

Danke.

Here's a new version (v0.5) with the following updates:
  • Refinements to German text.
  • You can now select the desired language in Global Settings.
  • Added a "Snap to Grid" feature in Global Settings.
  • Added a "Find" command in the Bar context menu, since it's possible to accidentally move a bar off the screen.
  • New cursor style: Picture frame.

I updated the attachment in the OP.

I'll be ready to post an initial release in the Downloads area as soon as I write the instructions.

Correct!

Capitalization... hum... good question. To answer this one, I searched for some examples at home, e.g. my sound and PC. But all buttons I found were in English and all CAPITALS. Only on my printer there were Buttons with words in German and with capitals on the first letter, although they are no nouns.
  • "Passend auf Seite skalieren"
  • "Normales Papier"
  • "Glänzendes Papier"
  • "Ein"
Mostly it's unusual to write German words on buttons like
  • "PLAY"
  • "STOP"
  • "ON"
  • "OFF"
  • "VOLUME"
  • ...
Until the buttons are something special, so that not everyone knows about the English words on them, this is the point of writing all buttons in German.
I like capitals and correct words, hence I've a problem with myself. So I'd prefer to write all in CAPITALS.
In your case, I won't capitalize the first letters. But don't ask me why!

I don't know, if you know about it, but in German there are no capitals on "deutsch" and "englisch". But verbs can be written as nouns, so then they have capitals, too.

"Das Trinken aus der Flasche geht schneller als mit einem Glas."
but
"Aus der Flasche trinken geht schneller als mit einem Glas."

It's the same sentence.


I hope, I could help a bit.

Hmm.

There is one other thing to consider. LOTRO renders the menu titles in all-caps regardless of capitalization, although there is a size difference. So the choice really is between

1. GLÄNZENDES PAPIER

and

2. GLÄNZENDES PAPIER

Based on your advice, I am leaning towards 2.

I did a look at some common windows programs (explorer, word, firefox). Their menu entries and buttons all start with a capitalized letter.
So I'd say, choose number 1.

As you may have noticed, I finally posted version 1.0 of this plugin here.

I have added some new text to the plugin. Would any of you be kind enough to translate the new text into German?

I am attaching the relevant file. Wherever you see something like this
Code:
[de] = "?"
there is something that needs to be translated into German.

Vielen Dank!
