As discussed last year on LinkedIn the German translations in the context menu for Excel's PivotTable Show Value is incorrect. My suggestions (approved by the German moderator) back then where:
% of grand total = % des Gesamtergebnisses % of parent row total = % des übergeordneten Zeilenergebnisses % of parent column total = % des übergeordneten Spaltenergebnisses % of parent total = % des übergeordneten Ergebnisses Running total in… = Laufende Summe von %running total in… = % laufende Summe von Since the running total accumulates (sums up) figures, we can translate it to „laufende Summe“ instead of „laufendes Ergebnis“ All other totals are NOT necessarily sums (could be averages, counts etc.) so we should translate these totals to „Ergebnis“.
Unfortunately, most of it didn't reach Excel so far :(
Can you please follow up on this matter?
