[german translation] call person

Related to

The german translation of the string "call person" is "Kontakt anrufen", but the desired action is to call a contact "Kontakt" just like in the english or french translation. Since 'contacts' are a known metaphor in sailfish (and other mobile os'es) for stored credentials, the word 'person' is misleading, because it could also be interpreted as a not nearer known individual. Also "Person anrufen" appears before "Telefonnummer eingeben" 'Enter phone number' in the pulleymenu, so it is likely to chose the wrong action for the desired next step.
