I just downloaded the latest version, which adds german translation.

Now Toodledo on iPhone/iPad ist as ugly as it is possible:

50% of the buttons aren´t readable any more or are meaningless because of the shortend text.

As an example: Adding a new task gives two buttons:

"Aufgabe hinzu..." - Add task....? What?
"Bearbeite Einz..." - ????? What the heck does that mean?

The interface is not suited for the longer germans words, so, please: How can I go back to have englisch as interface language?

Thanks

Not sure if this still applies, but, from a previous post by Toodledo:
The language of the app is controlled by the language settings on your iPhone. Apple does not provide a way for the language to be selected on a per-app basis.

After looking at all the screens of the app: The german translation renders Toodledoo useless. What you see is mostly dots.

Entering task details leaves you with

anfangsd...
fälligkeit...
erinner...
fälligkeit...

This renders the application useless and - its UGLY.

And, besides, ist wrong: In German we use Captial Letter It should read:

Anfangsd...
Fälligkeit...

So. Deleted it from Phone and iPad, bought ToDo, which looks WAY better.

Thanks for listening.

You must switch the whole iPhone to english.

I complained 3-4 time on that about the french version. There is according to him NOTHING to do about it.

Note: I wouldn't mind having my iPhone in english but there is a bug and half the OS text is really messed up. (still better than having TD translated)

Ps: This forced upon "improvement" has been provided free by Mr anonymous, You are now the one responsible to fix it (free)

To TD : WHAT DID YOU EXPECT ? No need to understand German to figure out that If half the text on a button get lost there is a problem.
Even if the translation was "perfect" many people might not want it.
