Everytime someone posts something into one of your facebook groups, you will get a Facebook notification containing a grammatical error in the german translation (this is only valid for posts in facebook groups, not for any other Facebook notifications):

The wrong standard string is the following in german:

"Xyz hat am am 'Wochentag' in 'Facebook Gruppe' gepostet: ..."

One of the two words 'am' is needless, so the string should look like this:

"Xyz hat am 'Wochentag' in 'Facebook Gruppe' gepostet: ...".

Thanks for your comment! This text does not appear to be coming from our translation files, but from Facebook's. Therefore we cannot fix it. Sorry for that.

Thanks for your quick answer. Are you aware of any way to report this to Facebook?
