Therefore, Galaxy device owners are advised to check the beta program for their region by opening the app and going to the “Alerts” section. However, please be assured that if you try to transfer the One UI 5.0 build distributed in Germany to your European device from another region, you should still be able to use your phone in the respective European language, as it is essentially a unified EUX build.
