German Character Count

Hi,

on the locked home screen 
IOS 7 english shows "slide to unlock" 
IOS 7 german shows "zum Entsperren streichen"

So to be conform with IOS7 it should be

> Slide to disable alarm
Streichen um den Alarm zu deaktivieren

> Slide to turn alarm off
Streichen um den Alarm auszuschalten

But for my german ears 
Schieben um den Alarm zu deaktivieren 
or 
Ziehen um den Alarm zu deaktivieren

and

Schieben um den Alarm auszuschalten
or
Ziehen um den Alarm auszuschalten

sounds more "familiar".

But i would go the "IOS7" way.

Regards,

Matthias
