- "Downloading" is translated as "Ontvangsten". While this is an exact and totally correct Dutch translation, it looks weird. Every Dutch nerd, and even the normal folks know what downloads or downloading is, and the word "Downloading" or in Dutch-ish "Downloads" or "Downloaden", looks a lot better then "Ontvangsten", so why translate it?
- Same goes for "Uploading", leave it or change it to "Uploads" or "Uploaden".
The words "Downloaden" and "Uploaden" are even mentioned in THE Dutch online dictionary: Downloaden Uploaden
-Go to "Preferences / Display" ("Voorkeuren / Toon" in Dutch):
The original option is called "Display" and it is translated with "Toon".
"Toon" is not the best choice of words, "Weergave" would be a much better translation as it describes more clearly what sort of settings can be found here and it is used in most Dutch software for these kinds of settings, so more people will recognize the option.
Overall, I think the English to Dutch translation is too exact, most words are translated correctly, but it has a kind of online-translator-feeling to it.

That's not the same.
'Laatste Complete Deel' would be in English 'Last complete part'.
A good translation of 'Last seen complete' would be: 'Voor het laatst compleet gezien'. Or, if that's too long: 'Recent compleet gezien'.

Ahh well I'll stick with the english edition. The dutch translation sometimes causes the statistics and preferences buttons to fall "outside" of the screen when I launch eMule from the tray.
