Immersion: Language combinations not available

I can upload English documents, but in the "Choose the language into which to translate this document:" field, only [es, fr, it, pt] are available. Why is German missing?

Furthermore, when I tried to upload a document in French, Italian, Spanish or Portuguese, only English was available as a target language.

What is going on?

These are the only combinations we currently support.

You mean we cannot upload documents to be translated into German? In that case, where do they come from?

Documents get translated from a language that a user is learning into their native language. We do not currently offer learning English from German, so German will not appear as an option when you upload an English document. However, if you upload a German document, it can be translated into English - these are the documents that appear to German learners.

Puedo subir documentos en inglés,pero en el "Elija el idioma al que traducir este documento:" el campo, sólo [es, fr, it, pt] están disponibles. ¿Por qué falta alemán? Por otra parte, cuando traté de cargar un documento en francés, italiano, español o portugués, Inglés solamente estaba disponible como un idioma de destino. ¿Qué está pasando?
