Camera: Wrong translation "Hochformat" of "Portrait" in German UI

You need to
before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
EXACT STEPS LEADING TO PROBLEM:
1. Switch language settings to German
2. Open camera application
3. Tap on (usually) "A" for camera mode
See the pre-defined settings:
"Automatisch", "Makro", "Landschaft", "Porträt", "Action"
"Automatisch", "Makro", "Landschaft", "Hochformat", "Action"
I assume "Landscape" and "Portrait" in this context are not related to the
device orientation, but to the scene. (If I'm wrong, it's still a bug, but then
"Landschaft" would be wrong.)
The German word "Hochformat" as used in the German version of the UI explicitly
means portrait format or orientation. Reading it without knowing the English
translation, you'd have no clue that it could have anything to do with the
portrait of a person. Users would tap on it and expect the UI changing to
portrait mode or such.
The correct German term here is "Porträt", which is also what German speaking
users find on their digital cameras.

To answer popular followup questions:
* Nokia does not announce release dates of public updates in advance.
* There is currently no access to these internal, non-public build versions.
A Brainstorm proposal to change this exists at
Setting explicit PR1.2 milestone (so it's clearer in which public release the
fix will be available to users).
