German quotes:

There is another way to write German quotes: left quote: \glqq (i.e. german
left quote quote, space after it) and at the end: \grqq\ (i.e. german right
quote quote, directly attached to the word). Please note that the last
backslash (\grqq\) has to be deleted before puntuation marks.

good luck, uwe
