  2. Then register at
  3. Then you will be able to start making suggestions. You only have to do the translations for Dutch in the category Apps for applications that start with the letters a through g. 
  4. After completion the language manager will review your translations and in some cases suggest areas of improvement.

Some hints

  • It is good to have a look at the suggestions that Pootle gives you, but make sure that the translation also fits in with the style around it. 
  • It is advisable to have Haiku running, either in a virtual machine or on real hardware, so that you can have a look at the context of the translation.
  • Take your time.
  • During translation, code-specific things like \n, or things prefixed with a % like %s, need to be copied one on one. Also be aware of trailing spaces.
