Hi fellow translators for Dutch,

At the Mozilla project, and I think also other translation project, we
generally translate English verbs (where it is difficult to see whether
an infinitive or an imperative is meant) with the infinitive, unless it
is clear that this is not appropriate. Furthermore, we put the
infinitive at the end of the sentence, or at least after its object.

Have a look at some of my recent translations at
http://babel.eclipse.org/babel/recent.php to see what I mean. I would
pledge that we try to keep a consistent style this way.

Roel: dit is speciaal voor jou!

Cheers, H.
