Why isn't it "Las direcciones son en alemán" rather than "están?" I thought it would be ser because being in German seems like a fundamental characteristic of the directions and there's no physical location involved. I'm having trouble figuring out why it's estar.

Hm, good question. I don't know, but "están" came naturally to me, so I never thought about it being "son" in this case.
