When I wish to add a new entry to the BlueBoard via the respective tab in the BlueBoard window in German ("Eintrag hinzufügen") a selection list for countries is displayed. This seems to be sorted by some index key that was dreived from another language than German.
Please sort it alphabetically and not by index key. Otherwise Österreich is found among the countries beginning with an "A" (since it's Austria in English, I guess) and Ägypten (Egypt) under "E" and many more wild examples.

Please, either leave the list in English or sort it alphabetically for each respective language, so we really can find what we are looking for.

I don't know if this is the case with other selection lists as well, but you should check this.

Thanks for your efforts!

Claudia
