I am a bit confused. Neither de_DE.ISO-8859-1 nor

This is the correct locale name, but don't use tr like that, you can't rely on
that to work correctly with charsets which aren't symmetric in
lower&uppercase characters (it used to work at some point for the ISO8859-1
 locales but ceased after a POSIX related modification to tr).
