Attached is a zip fil containing the three updated NL language files for OpenCPN 2.3.1, build 2010-12-28. Some modifications and additions were made.

Before use, remove .doc from extension first.

The translation of the following sentences on page Settings of the Toolbox are not shown by the application:
"X Offset (Positive moves map to East) (NMi/cos(lat)) :"
"Y Offset (Positive moves map to North) (NMi/cos(lat)) :".

Also, the text between the second set of brackets in both sentences seems not to be correct to me.

,

This normal because this items are not used now. In 2.3.0 there was two other items whithout NMi/cos(lat) but in 2.3.1 these two other items are not presents in the toolbox.

Best regards

Re: OpenCPN Internationalization (i18n)

The Dutch language files for OpenCPN 2.4.0 beta, build 2011-03-10. Remove .doc from the filename extension before use.

Remarks:
a. the Settings tab in the Toolbox still contains 2 text items in English (Disable Full Screen Quilting and Show Grid; couldn't be translated because not yet present in the language file).
b. the Dashboard PlugIn Preferences Window in the Toolbox still contains at least 5 text items in English (couldn't be translated because not yet present in the language file).

Re: OpenCPN Internationalization ( i18n )

I translate the texts in the language files of OpenCPN from English to Dutch. In those files I didn't see any of the words HotRod mentions in his list. So, now I wonder what I missed and how ....

Anyway:
LE/V = ?

Ldg Lt Front = leading light front; this is the lowest light (on sea side) of two lights in line forming a leading mark, e.g. for entering a harbour

Ldg Lt Rear = leading light rear; this is the highest light (on shore side) of two leading lights

Light Vessel/Rig = Light Vessel is clear; I assume Rig means a light on a fixed structure.

Lt = Short for Light? Correct!

Lt sect. = Short for Light sector? Correct!

LtV/Rig = I assume this is Light Vessel/Rig.

PC/V = ?

Port = As in harbour or port side? May be both. Depends on the context where it is used. Check this by running the programming and find where it is shown. OpenCPN is a navigation application, so most probably it is: port side (left).

RACON = Radar Beacon. Transmitter installed on e.g. a buoy or light vessel, transmitting a signal when a radar puls is received from a ship's radar system. Also called: secondary radar. This results in an indication on the ship's radar screen.

S/V = ? Maybe "sailing vessel"?

Wing in ground effect = This is a ground effect that aircraft experience on very low altitudes. I don't understand the relation to vessel navigation.

Yat = ? I know yaw, but yat?

port hand and starboard hand ... Is that something else than starboard side or port side? No, is exactly the same!

LE/V - Law Enforcement Vessel
PC/V - Pollution Control Vessel
S/V - Sailing Vessel (not the same as Vessel Sailing nor Vessel Under Sail!)
Yat - Yacht, pleasure craft
Wing in Ground, WIG - I still don't know, but it's an official AIS category

The S/V is universally understood, I think.

I invented LE/V and PC/V when coding the AIS extensions. These are short forms, so some 4 characters max... I don't know if an official abbreviation exists here... The user can always consult the Properties Dialog to see the full form, so nothing critical.

YAT is the official code for pleasure vessels used by the ITU - the Radio Authority.

Port hand vs. port side - it is copied from AIS specification verbatim, but I do see a difference. A vessel has port side and starboard side. The channel has port hand marks and starboard hand marks.

Interesting nobody asked before...

Must be taken into account for AIS because there are aircraft that are WIG vehicles (specially designed to fly very close - 3 to 20 m - to the surface).

See: Ground effect vehicle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Yep, the important part is that a WIG is only capable of flying in ground effect. It does not have enough lift to fly up in the open air. Which is why you don't need a pilots license to fly one.

Light Vessel = As in Not heavy? Or Vessel carrying lights for e.g. fishing?
Rig = Any explanation other that the above? Is that correct?

Re: OpenCPN Internationalization ( i18n )

One more...
D/V =

Could not find it in AIS abbrevation list... So...

Ain't it possible to make room for the whole text, instead of a bunch of abbrevations?

Re: OpenCPN Internationalization ( i18n )

You'll find all these new strings: long & short version in src/ais.cpp around line 195

"D/V" long version is "Vessel Diving"

In Norwegian (I hope I am correct): Fyrskip
