[nl] Translations of infinitives [message #22762] Tue, 11 November 2008 10:09 Go to next message

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.

Hi Hendrik,

Thanks a lot for the suggestions.
I first thought you might be based in the Netherlands and more likely to
be close to Antwerp, where I'm speaking about Babel next month, but I
found you might be just around the corner from Stuttgart, if Tuebingen
is your current location ??

Any plans or chance to attend ESE in Ludwigsburg next week??
If so, I'd be happy to see you there and maybe speak in more detail
about your ideas towards Babel and translation in general.

Cheers,
Werner
