richb, that was really fast :-)

Wegen uBO uBM war die Extension nicht sichtbar.

Fantasie ist gefragt ;-)

Could you say a word about how the 4 languages announced were selected? As a point of reference, I attach a list of the Top 20 countries that downloaded MX-18.3 (top: x64, bottom: 386).

Thanks for the report. We are evaluating how useful it will be and what issues arise.

\That is good information to have. Other languages are available and can be added. The ones shown except for Dutch were included in the extension package. We also added a language pack and languages need to be defined in the extension. I will check which languages are available from the language pack.

I don't think the Google English-German translation is so great. You can understand it, but there are better alternatives. But thanks anyway for the quick implementation.
If you don't like the Google translation (which I understand), you can do your translation on https://www.deepl.com/translator Without an app or similar, just open this page with your favourite browser and have the text translated.
I always do that and see no problem in it. The translation from English into German is excellent, the translation from German into English I cannot judge. But this text has been translated with DeepL from German into English. The quality has to be judged by English speaking people.

It's a bit clunky, both in Dutch and German, but it gets the basic idea across.

Deepl is indeed MUCH better in providing a proper translation to German from English so I have found. It's the one I use by default if I need to reply to someone.

I can read German just fine, so that part is no issue for me, just writing grammar wise and words and stuff.. it's VERY obvious when I am too lazy to get Deepl's help. It's been almost 30 years, so.. :laugh:
