These two books are already out for sale (the pickaxe book is called
"Programmieren mit Ruby. Handbuch f den pragmatischen Programmierer."
in German; ISBN: 382731965X).

And there's a forthcoming book in German, I discovered at amazon.de
today: 

  Das Einsteigerseminar Ruby. 
  Der methodische und ausfrliche Einstieg.
  by Dirk Engel and Klaus Spreckelsen 
  ISBN: 3826672429

It will be published this year.
