There's no update on this issue since quite a while.
Thus, I'm closing this issue.

Thanks for the report, but I don't find the word "writalbe"
anywhere in the Git history nor in the latest binary built from Git:

$ find/find --help | grep writa
      -readable -writable -executable

As there is a German sentence at the end of '--version' output,
I assume this is an error in the translation.  Still, the latest
PO translation files doesn't show this typo either.
I can only guess that this typo has already been fixed there
(and your distribution needs to pick up that fix in a new build).

As such, I'm marking this as "invalid" for now.

2. and 3. find --help

4. and 5. In the section "Tests":   ... -readable -writalbe -executable ...

I think it should be ... -writable ...

I searched for an already submitted bug.
