German dataset doesn't work for training

I’m trying to train a german model with DeepSpeech. But as I downloaded the german dataset from the website, I noticed that the folder names and the the whole structure of the tsv-files differs from the english ones which I downloaded with the script (those even were csv-files).

I tried to unpack the german dataset with the script in the hope that it would reformat the files and folders like it did with the english dataset. But it didn’t.

Is there some kind of converter, or do I have to write one myself? And why aren’t the files already in the right form so can use them?

Did you try using

@wagnrd: if you are still looking for DeepSpeech results on German Language. Check paper and repository. It might be useful.
