GUI: Translation wrong: Settings - ändern (en-de)

The trasnlation in the main menu for "settings" (english) to german is wrong.

"Settings" does not mean "ändern". It's actually not even the same type of word. "Settings" = a noun meaning "Einstellungen". The translation "ändern" is a Verb & means "to change".

PS: I leave the Priority to "major" as i think i am not the only one who tries to change some settings every now and then & always spends several minutes to fnd those "settings". I will switch to the english version for now.

Well, it is correct that Ändern != Settings but we've got never a complaint about this term and the translation says what this button does: It opens a dialog for changing the (settings of the) VM. Furthermore Einstellungen is a bit longer and makes the dialog look worse. And finally the VM settings can also be opened by clicking on the links in the detail view.
