[All Platforms][Other] Add an alternative german translation without "gender star"

Even though this idea: https://community.spotify.com/t5/Closed-Ideas/Please-let-me-disable-the-stupid-Genderstern/idi-p/546... got closed with a reference to another closed issue here: https://community.spotify.com/t5/Closed-Ideas/All-Platforms-Other-Please-make-genderstar-in-german-l...

 

I just want to open it again. The approach of ideologized language does not fit the valid rules of the german language and therefore it disturbs the whole experience with your service if language settings are set to "German".

 

Please understand that noone want's to cancel that custom version of the german language a minority of people share and use (it's actually only 10% of the population). We just want to have the native german language added back as an option. This wouldn't be so hard as you only have to remove everyting like "*innen".

 

I'd volunteer for the job of i18n that, if it's a matter of staff costs.

 

Just don't ignore over SEVENHUNDRED upvotes for that idea!

 

Please consider that idea. It's not hard to implement and would make the experience of Spotify better for the majority of your german customers.

 

Thanks!

 

inb4: I'll open that idea again, and again, and again. So please at least TRY to dialogue with us.
