Hi Burt,

I am not a German speaker myself, but I can only applaud such initiatives. It is always a good thing to produce more introductory material in various languages, so that people who are not comfortable with English can still learn about Coq.

You may be aware of our effort to create language-specific categories in this forum, so that people who are not comfortable with English can still come and ask questions. In particular, there is a category for German:

These categories have not been a success so far, probably because the target audience is not aware of their existence. May I suggest that you mention the existence of this German sub-forum in your tutorial?

Conversely, you could cross-post this announcement in German in As of today, it won’t really help to reach out to more people, but in the long-term, it might make your tutorial easier to discover for people looking specifically for German resources.
