German ASCII would be ISO-8859-15 instead of -1 and furthermore we are using unicode (UTF-8) in Germany.

ISO-8859-15 features the Euro sign instead of the generic currency sign, umlauts are supported in both of them. UTF-8 unicode does not seem to have an effect on some non-KDE apps and no effect in text mode, so umlauts or the eszett ligature cannot be entered. FreeBSD uses some system variables to control language specific behaviour in order to display certain values in the preferred regional format (LC_TIME, LC_MONETARY, LC_COLLATE etc.), others do control program output languages (LC_MESSAGES). Inside KDE, UFT-8 is the correct choice, I agree. As long as you stick to KDE applications and don't do any "strange" stuff, you won't notice anything.

"If you're are from Germany, help them!"

Sorry, KDE is definitely not designed for me, I had to waste a lot of red pencils... :-)

Furthermore, we have a high rate of functional illiteracy here in Germany, so no one would see any difference. Fundamental techniques of society (such as reading, writing, elementar mathematics) are not very important here, sadly.
