Andrea, could you please list exactly the things you tried?

In particular, have you checked that languages/LanguageDe.php is the 
exacty original file, that it has not been edited or altered in any 
way? In 1.3.7 it should have the MD5 checksum 
619ee2455928dacbea363020254ea464; it's 63582 bytes long and was dated 
September 3, 2004.

Secondly, can you list exactly what, if any, changes you have made to 
your LocalSettings.php file? Did you change anything in there after 
installing? What exact options did you select while installing?

Thirdly, can you provide details of your PHP configuration? A script 
like this provides a large amount of configuration information:
<?php phpinfo() ?>
