Grammar of success message wrong

cryptsetup (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

When I start my encrypted system and enter the passphrase, cryptsetup states
"cryptsetup successfully"

As "successfully" is an adverb, but there is no verb in the entire message I consider it a typo.
IMHO it should either read
"cryptsetup successfully finished"
"cryptsetup successful"

On the other hand, as my system is configured for the german locale, and most plymouth messages on my machine come in german language the message should also be displayed in the german locale. But it is not.
