Translating to English

Since my project is now considered finished, i'm starting to translating my project into English version (originally in Dutch). Usually, i'm translating to Indonesian language, but now, i have to translate into English from Dutch. In some cases, i used Babel Fish Translation from Altavista, but sometimes the translations becomes fuzzy, so i had to ask for my colleague's help to translate it (he's from Belgium, so he knows about Dutch language).

There are about 1000 strings to be translated, but luckily not all of them are filled in, so it's less than 1000 strings. The problem is to find the best words to reflect the original string so it won't change the meaning.

Happy Translating....
