    Function translations (All)

    Hi,
    this has featured already in earlier topics but I can't find them... hope you don't mind me creating a new one.
    Microsoft has no translation lists available for the names of functions (e.g. VLookup (Eng) = Vert.Zoeken (Dutch)).
    I wonder if there are other users finding this quite a burden too... and if so, if we can't create a dictionary somewhere together... kind of like a wiki (*) where those who want can contribute.
    We can start with a simple table, eg (draft draft draft) = software + version + type (regular function / menu / ...) + From + To with one table for each language combination.
    Something I better leave in dreamland or something worth exploring... and ... any ideas?
    What do you think?

    Hi,
    You mean something like the xlMenuFunDict utility found here courtesy of our very own JKP? <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
