I wonder why my WordPress installation has frequent updates for all sorts of translations, as my webpage is in a single language only (German). Is there some way to uninstall languages/translations that are not needed?

so you will need at least translations into german.

there shouldn't be other packages loaded for your site. you can find these files in the language folders in wp-content. there are other language folders as well in the plugins or in thmemes.

    To expand: for some time now plugins and themes usually don't ship their own translations, but use them via GlotPress (eg here is the link to YOAST). So when translations of a plugin are updated, you do this via regular "updates" and not by updating the plugin itself. – kero Dec 11 '18 at 13:00
  • Can I remove languages that I think I do not need? If yes, how? (Probably just deleting them in "wp-content/languages/" is not a good option.) Or is it better to keep them all? – user155732 Dec 11 '18 at 13:04

    @BodoManthey You can control translation updates with WordPress hooks while still allowing code updates. This example uses this hook – Tim Dec 12 '18 at 10:30
