(Reintroduced Sdx's changes but without messing up translations)
(@Claus chr - this page does not have any translations, so if I delete the old, unused translation tags, does it hurt anyone!? The translation tags everywhere make it difficult to work with this page, but the topics need re-arrangement because they are not well organized and even refer to an ancient digiKam v2.0. How about removing translation tags all together when nobody is trying to translate this anyway?)
