Get the latest OS update for the 8700, located at the top of this 8700 section in the Sticky Notes... follow the instructions there, and upon upgrade of the OS on the device, in Application Loader, make sure your additional Language options are checked--those that you need.

Let me add--on your BB device, look at Options > Language (or whatever the German equivilent is). Can you select any additional languages there?
