Hello Martin,

Unfortunately some message positions have to change from time to time.
The best way to work on dialog translation is to update xml files as explained 
in http://www.w3.org/Amaya/User/Overview.html
   1.  menu entries
       (Amaya/tools/xmldialogues/bases/base_am_dia.xml)
   2. amaya messages and dialogs
       (Amaya/tools/xmldialogues/bases/base-am_msg.xml)
   3. thotlib messages and dialogs
       (Amaya/tools/xmldialogues/bases/base_am_lib.xml)

I hope it's not to complex for you to insert your translations in these files 
and send me these new file versions.
After that initial integration, I'll send requests for only new inserted 
messages.

Pay attention that these files are utf-8 encoded and the next release will 
come early July.

Regards
     Irène.
