Translation error XFCE installation guide

I tried to install xfce today using the german handbook at first:

There are two obvious errors between the shell commands in the german
and the english version

English (correct):

% echo ". /usr/local/etc/xdg/xfce4/xinitrc" > ~/.xinitrc
% echo ". /usr/local/etc/xdg/xfce4/xinitrc" > ~/.xsession

German (bad):

% echo "./usr/local/etc/xdg/xfce4/xinitrc" > ~/.xinitrc
% echo "./usr/local/etc/xdg/xinitrc" > ~/.xsession

Both commands lack the required space behind the first dot. The second
command has lost the "/xfcr4" which is crucial.

I hope this is useful.

All the best,
