Report

Report Ngerman is a dialect of the language german. Dialects of a language have to be mapped to the language to work with glossaries. Makeglossaries contains such mappings for the dialects germanb and ngermanb, while ngerman is missing. This is the reason why ngerman is not working with glossaries.
