Thank you for the thorough review.

Thank you for fixing all the small issues I remarked, so quickly.

While doing the translation I noticed a few more things.

In awk, variables do not have types, only values do. If you are strict
about distinguishing parameters from arguments, the above message should
rather be:

> %s: first argument is not an array

There are still some of the "first argument is not" messages that end
with a newline and some that don't. Since I'm using Poedit, these
mistakes are caught reliably. Still, it would be better overall to
follow a single style.

The other diagnostics don't end with a period. This applies to a few
other diagnostics as well. These all end in "%s.".

You replaced the first "gawk" with "%s", but not the second one. Why not?

I just sent you the updated German translation via the Translation Project.
