Bug Description

The German translation for "Long-Edge Binding" or "Short-Edge Binding" appear to be reversed in some PPD files.

The incorrect PPD files contain the following lines:

*Duplex DuplexNoTumble/Long-Edge Binding: "<</Duplex true /Tumble false>> setpagedevice"
*Duplex DuplexTumble/Short-Edge Binding: "<</Duplex true /Tumble true>> setpagedevice"

*de.Duplex DuplexNoTumble/Bindung oben: ""
*de.Duplex DuplexTumble/Bindung links: ""

According the Google translate:
Bindung oben = Tie up
Bindung links = Binding left
https://translate.google.com/#de/en/Bindung%20oben%0ABindung%20links

Therefore, these PPD files should instead have:
*de.Duplex DuplexNoTumble/Bindung links: ""
*de.Duplex DuplexTumble/Bindung oben: ""

Note that some other PPD files use different German words to describe this, which could potentially be clearer or more precise:
*de.Duplex DuplexNoTumble/Bindung an langer Kante: ""
*de.Duplex DuplexTumble/Bindung an kurzer Kante: ""
