When setting mountpoints, sysinst lets you delete a mountpoint by giving "none" as mountpoint (without quotes).

In the german translation you are advised to enter "kein(e)" which is a correct translation in general but of course does not what it should. So there should be "none" instead of the german tranlation because entering "kein(e)" will not work anyways. So this item "kein(e) = none" should not be translated and read something = "none für keinen Mountpoint"

start an installation, change language to german set a mountpoint in partitioning and try to delete it 
change german translation

 This is true but a more general problem in edit_fs_mountpt - it does not
 compare to a localized string but instead hardcoded "none".

 I'll look at it during the merge of last years GSoC results.
