From manual page:
The description of the "stripslahes" function says (in gemran as in english), that 
it's removing/unquoting quotes :) That's, as the functionname says, wrong. It un-
escapes an escaped string ;)

Greetings, Andy!

I think the English version is fine: it's talking about quoting in terms of escaping, rather than "quotes". It's also the direct opposite of the addslashes() description.

Switching to a translation problem so one of our German translators can check the German version.

So why not just write "unescaping", instead of talking about quoting in terms of 
escaping? :) That would be less annoying!

I would trust aharvey, who is a native English speaker, that the
wording is fine. :)

Anyhow, I have submitted a respective patch via PHPOE for the
German translation, which is definitely wrong.

This bug has been fixed in the documentation's XML sources. Since the
online and downloadable versions of the documentation need some time
to get updated, we would like to ask you to be a bit patient.

Thank you for the report, and for helping us make our documentation better.
