The German translation of the string "Passed" is set to be "Durchgelaufen", which I believe is an incorrect interpretation of the word.

The word "to pass" can mean several things: "to pass a law", "to pass a test", "to pass a tunnel" etc.

I believe the meaning in this context is "to pass a test", because it is used when the checksums of the source files are validated:

==> Validating source files with sha256sums...
age-1.0.0.beta7.tar.gz ... Passed

However, the German translation is set to "Durchgelaufen", which is the translation of "to pass a tunnel" or "to pass a filter". I believe the correct translation would be "Erfolg" (success), or "Fertig" (done).

For reference, the French translation is set to "RĂ©ussite" (success).

Additional info:
* package version(s): 5.2.2
This task depends upon
