Hi Sven, The third image in my yesterday's mail, shows the (Windows) folder where the help was installed: it was definitely "nl". Of course I can still download the "en"-version. I understand that would then be put in a "en"-folder where GIMP would find it.
My clever (?) "otherwise"-proposition was to simply rename the existing "nl"-folder in "en", hoping that GIMP then would show the - partly - translated Dutch help instead of the pure English, which for some people here is like Chinese. BTW: You CC'd your mail to the gimp-usr list but it was not bounced to me. But I can see it in the archive. How come? Thanks for your reaction.

You installed the Dutch help package, but it installed itself in a folder named "en" ?? Please note that you should always install the English manual _and_ the localized version. That ensures that the help-browser can use the English manual as a fallback. You could also install other languages as fallback and use the "help-locales" gimprc variable to tweak the order of locales that the help browser tries to use.
