comment Spelling to pronunciation
"I'm happy with something that works 99.9% of the time" nope - it's only let's say 75%. My son just learned reading in school and when reading words, he does not know yet, there is a significant chance he uses a wrong pronounciation.

comment Distinction “prüfen” vs. “überprüfen”
@Tim: It's taken from the spec of a database API. I wasn't involved in choosing these words :-) The automatic check against an xsd is an option to be switched on or off when importing. "können Sie" sounds more like semi auto or manually. Besides, it sounds quite common for a German technical documentation.

Als Höflichkeitsform der 3. Person Singular (sehr selten, veraltet) wird Ihr immer großgeschrieben.

The glossary of "Handbuch für Fachinformatiker" only uses well-known terms, most of them with an own entry in the German wikipedia. Some of them aren't even well explained: "Race Condition Wettstreit mehrerer Prozesse um eine Systemressource."
