Quality Dutch Language files

I am checking out this plugin for future projects. What struck me is that the quality of the Dutch language files is terribly bad. It looks like the translations come directly from Google Translate. Some of these translations are absolutely useless in a commercial environment.

Am i looking at automatic translated files which are indeed Google Translated files or were these files basically translated through google translate (or equivalent) and need some kind of checkup?

Best regards,

I think someone (not us) ran the translation through Google Translate and submitted them.

All of the translations included with Event Espresso have been submitted by volunteers (we offer a few incentives to help where we can to those who volunteer). If you’d like to help improve the quality of the translations, please sign up here:

@pascal, I’ve upgraded your account. Are you referring to the pending translations (in yellow) or the completed translations that were submitted (and are in the actual plugin, in green)? I had the same feedback from the translator who did the bulk of the work when I asked him to validate the newly translated strings, but he was unable to commit to working on them or fixing them.

Hi Chris,

Nope, the translations which are included in the plugin, so yes the green ones in Glotpress probably.
I’m going to take a look if i can commit some changes, will keep you posted!
