In case any of you is interested, I just saw that this machine is being offered in ebay Kleinanzeigen (German local classified ads site). It seems to include a bunch of soft titles burned in EPROM chips, which sounds quite odd to me. :-)

Weird indeed. It is also the QWERTY version, so not really meant for the German market.
The disk drive also seems to be some kind of home made creation.

There has ever been a localized version of the 8020 for the german market?

There is a model with German QWERTZ keyboard, just look at the wiki.
