    Basically, MS have just not got this right. At least it is not Dutch and some more obscure language!

    Many of my Danish friends just use an English install, as they say it is easier as the Danish translations are imprecise quite often, and they can translate better than MS!

    Thanks. I deleted the post, because in this specific case, there was a setting to select the language. I re-selected English (it was set to English) but again selected it and now the Dutch sections changed into English. In this particular case, the matter is solved.
    However, if my memory serves me well, I did encounter same situation (2 languages) with other applications.
    It is weird but usually no problem.
    It is a problem when mailing a screenshot and having to 'translate' the Dutch words into English.
    Right now I am afraid of changing the location (regional settings, date-time settings, tab 'location') due to probably undesired consequences.
