I agree, that if such an effort is done the article should be published and
reused as much as possible and the freiesMagazin license explicitly allows for
that. One could even think of translating it...

But even without republishing it, the article could be useful as part of the
online documentation, giving a nice-to-read brief overview of what subsurface
does and looks like.

Regarding other dive-magazines: It's definitely worth trying to ask. Although
many magazines are not as proactive with their license as they could. =D
