AFAIK there is none. I actually thought about doing it myself but
quickly dropped the idea due to several reasons:

- nearly everyone in Germany, Austria and Switzerland speaks English
- 99% of all information related to Linux and computers in general is
  English, that means if you're not able to understand the LFS book
  you'll get lost anyway
- the difficult part of reading technical documentation is usually
  understanding the technical terms - in the computer field, however,
  the English terms are also used in German, anyway.

And, of course, there's the standard problem of all translations: they
will always lag behind and they will always be less accurate.

But, hey, noone's gonna stop you from translating (-;
