The latest release of Rockbox is 100% translated in dutch. The cvs
additions have mostly been translated by Dutch/Flemish speaking Dev's
as far as I can tell. But it needs some love as it is in a sort of
Frankenstein English/Dutch) state. I plan to do another update as soon
as I have some time.

One problem that already came up was the difference between Flemish
and Dutch. Although both "Dutch" we have a different ways of saying

Now which voice strings are spoken at the moment? Can I take
english.lang as an example?
