The use of 'as' in "as told me" is old-fashioned slang.

See http://tatoeba.org/eng/sentences/show/429386

The Nether World / Gissing, George, 1857-1903

It was him as told me what to do. "Dye your hair, Jack," he says; "it's what I've had to myself," he says. "They won't have old men nowadays, at no price."

It would sound better to my ears if you said: "It was she who told me". Nominative case is needed after the verb to be.

"It was her that ..." is not uncommon usage.

I'd suggest adding your version as an alternate translation of the German if it matches.
