German translation:Berichtigungen
Explanation:
You're right, it's "Berichtigungen" (I would use the plural because the heading refers to the general term.)

Black's Law Dictionary defines "reformation" as follows:

"Reformation. A court-ordered correction of a written instrument to cause it to reflect the true intentions of the parties..."

Reformation (of person), Besserung


Explanation:
I am not sure what your context is, but above is what PONS suggests. As you can see, the word is the same in english and german, so I would just leave it be.

I believe firmly in using direct translations if available, especially if we are dealing with terms that have been taken over from other languages (as reformation has).
