Sorry to spoil it, but it's the German.  Hooray, I'm one of the 2% who
can solve it.  Thank god I have such a high IQ that this doesn't inflate

P.S.
This can be solved using finite-state transducers, see
http://www.xrce.xerox.com/competencies/content-analysis/fsCompiler/fsexamples.html#Einstein1
for a solution.  I'm not saying that I had actually read this article
before trying out the puzzle, but I have, so that's why I know ;-)
