Not so! From Germany SERP page 1 is all English results, and from the US it is mostly German! Very strange "localization" there.
I would actually do it that way in the US if somebody typed google.de. If you are in Florida and specifically ask fo the .de version of the search engine, then you probably do want German, otherwise you'd have asked for the regular google.com version.
I wonder if Google is pegging your google.de German search to be an American query....Maybe cookies, signed in in some way or possibly the structure of the query?
