    Just to be pedantic (and of no value to the purpose of this thread) it's a union flag, not a jack. It is only a jack if flown from the jackstay of a ship.

    That's o.k. 90% of British people call it a jack too.

    Sean,

    There is an issue with the second menu bar in the Dutch language. Apart from the fact that not all items have been translated, the menu's get scrambled due to to long description. Unfortunately, the Dutch language just isn't as compact as English. Often, a translation to Dutch results in a 30% increase / inflation in the number of characters.

    My suggestion:

    New Posts - Nieuwe post (replaces "Nieuwe berichten")
    Today's Posts - Post vandaag (replaces "Welke berichten zijn er vandaag?")
    Subscribed Threads - Abonnementen (replaces "Geabonneerde Onderwerpen")
    My Threads - Mijn discussies (replaces "My Threads")
    My Post - Mijn post
    Calendar - Kalender
    Member List - Leden (replaces "Leden lijst")
    Spy - Spion
    Mark Forum Read - Zet discussies gelezen (replaces "Markeer Forums als Gelezen")
    General Settings - Instellingen (replaces "Algemene Instellingen")
    My APUG - Mijn APUG
    Private Messages - Persoonlijke post
    Advanced Search - Zoeken

    Some Dutch members may not agree with replacing the word "Berichten" (post in english), as it is used now in the Dutch forum, by also using post. Actually, post is a good Dutch word as well, but solely confined to the real postal services delivering letters and packages on your door step, and not entirely suitable for computer language. Still, it is clear and much shorter than "bericht/post - berichten/posts), so I would recommend its usage.

    If people complain, you may consider the following setup, but it may still not display entirely right, however, it is shorter than current menu names used for the Dutch language.

    I don't know if it's just me but when I put my cursor over the flags, it only shows as a link on the left and right edges. the middle are of the flag image does not work as a link.

    In addition, you may wish to translate APUG's main menu bar as well. Here is a suggestion for the Dutch version.

    Home - Home
    Forum - Discussies
    Groups - Groepen
    Blogs - Blogs
    Gallery - Gallerie
    Portfolios - Portfolios
    Chat Room - Chat
    Articles - Artikelen
    Videos - Videos
    Classifieds - Aanbiedingen
    Links - Links
    Support Us! - Steun Ons!
    Mobile - Mobiel

    Some words do not have a Dutch translation, like Chat, it is used like that in Dutch as well. "Classifieds" is difficult to translate in Dutch. "Aanbiedingen" comes close, but some people may prefer "Markt" (market in English), or something like that...
