Just change one word in the preferences of German InDesign!
The German word "Textumfluss" is used two times in InDesign but with different meanings:
Within the preferences "Smart Text Reflow" is "Intelligenter Textumfluss".
And then there ist the "Text Wrap" panel, which is named "Textumfluss" in German, too.
So "wrap" gets the same translation as "reflow"? Noooooo! These are two different thing and should not be named the same!
A better translation for reflow would be "Textumbruch", so please change just one word in the German preferences, from "Intelligenter Textumfluss" to "Intelligenter Textumbruch".
It's easy to do: just five letters to change! One small piece of code. Done in a minute or less. :-)
The fix is now available in the Beta builds of InDesign. You can download the latest beta build from Download section of InDesign Prerelease portal.

This and related strings are now updated in build 144 and onwards.
i vote for: "Automatischer Textfluss" – "Umbruch" in detail means more the end go a line + some more typographic rules.
I wouldn't recommend "Textumbruch" – without knowing anything in Indesign I would expect some kind of smart hyphenation.
"Textumfluss" is a good word, just remove the two letters "um" so that it's "Intelligenter Textfluss".
Still there is nothing intelligent about it, but hey... ;)
Just my little peace of thought ;)
