Thank all of you for help and advices. - But I'am looking for a kind
of "built-in-able translator" ;-)
Bob gave me the important glue "held in tokenized form, the language
version does the
translation. " - I did some googling with the keywordds "translation
excel function name" and got the amazing result there is an add-on:
TranslateIT (formerly:MultiLingual Formula Translator),
Translate complete formulas between 12 excel languages (English,
Dutch, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Danish, Swedish,
Norwegian, Finnish and Russian).
Can be very useful in multilanguage environments or when you read the
english excel newsgroups, and happen to own a localized Excel version.
ADDED a routine to "localize" Analysis Toolpak functions from a
"foreign" file to local language.
parsing changed to use RegEx.

You might also want to consider the following:
Copy into Excel (A1:B340) the English and German function names for example
from one of the webpages mentioned in an earlier answer. Select A1:B340 and
import as Custom lists (Import lists from rows). Now in an empty cell write
for example TRANSPOSE (without equal sign), press the small square in the
lower right of the cell and drag downwards (or to the right) and you will
see the German equivalent MTRANS. It works both ways.
I you want to delete all these more than 300 hundred custom lists again I
think you will need a macro.
