I think the string below should really be translated. It's displayed in 
winecfg -> Desktop Integration tab, in the 'Item' list more precisely. 
This is where one can decide what color or font to use for each of the 
GUI elements. And actually all the items around "Message Box Text" are

There's also another translation that I think is wrong:

This used to be 'PostThat Yellow' which was a word play on PostIt. 
However 'Pale Yellow' is much clearer and the German translation does 
not look like a color name at all currently. So I think it's best not to 
continue with the bad pun (besides otherwise you would probably need to 
change it to 'PostIt[tm]...' anyway).

Everything else looks good (to a non-German speaking guy).
