If you have changed the settings after the install, then the MediaWiki  
namespace is still in the language that was used during the install. You  
can verify this by setting


in LocalSettings.php. If, after clearing your cache, the wiki is now in  
German, the problem is that your database contains the English messages.

If you don't need the MediaWiki namespace, you can leave it at that. If  
you do need it, I suggest reinstalling the wiki, but setting  
$wgLanguageCode before doing so.
