again, what's wrong with Radiobutton? https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radiobutton
IMHO, trying to "translate" well understood technical terms (Radiobutton, Slider, VU-Meter, Messagebox, Array, Canvas etc.) has a high chance of causing confusion instead of being helpful.
translating doesn't mean getting rid of every single trace of the original language.
anyway, I think we all seem to agree that the current German translation is more confusing than helpful :-)
PS: if we want to be *really* German I would opt for "Mehrfachoptionsfeld" :-p
