Awesome. We now have Bulgarian, German, Swiss-German, Norwegian,
Swedish, Finnish, Dutch, French, Slovakian; we also have Italian, just

Some of those are certainly not in the expected first 10 languages :-)

But we are missing a few rather important ones, including Spanish,
Portuguese and all of the Asian languages :-/

I am puzzled by Tauchgruppenführer as well. But I'll have to admit that
I have never gone diving in a German speaking country, so maybe that's
what people use... other native German speakers who want to weigh in?
