Even the German IPv6 council has problems avoiding the use of English, 
and let's not talk about Lena...

Even when I do a Google search for "seiten auf Deutsch" I get lots of 
pages with English on them. This is not something that I can fix. 

As for having a central wiki in English, this can still help solve
your problem. A well-publicised central wiki will get checked out
by lots of people. If it has a prominent link on the home page
for "Resources in other languages" then you could set up a "Resources in
German" page and point people to sites which they can understand. If you
have a similar wiki that is in German, then you can translate key pieces
of information for it.

Nothing happens just by magic. It takes a lot of hard work by a lot of

DENOG has a wiki http://wiki.denog.de/index.php/Hauptseite
Perhaps they will let you use it to create a comprehensive German
reference for IPv6 deployment.
