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 

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.

I am not quite sure if I understand what you are reporting here. 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.
