Sandra Bullock would be nice (but the one before the face adaptations ;) ).

Just sent off the 2nd version of the manuscript. All their comments have been taken to heart. Errors have been taken out, stupid Dutch language is hard with its pulled together words and such.

Fingers crossed that this one is going to get approved!!

So, how do you change the "middle" of a word?

Hmm how do you mean?

Over here words are pulledtogether like that in sentences. But it depends whether or not they should be, and that is what is hard to figure out. English is easier for me than that factor in Dutch.

Thank goodness for google ;)

Dutch language problems. You bring back some memories Eadwine. Some years ago I was preparing a training course on a complex equipment supplied by Philips.
The drawings were all In Dutch with many words strung together. Joanna, one of our team came from Holland and she could not help us much with words 20-30
letters in length. Your German neighbours do the same, particularly with technical wording, and in both cases, a normal translating dictionary is of little help.

Hahaha yep, exactly that!! Trust me.. it is annoying for us too. WHEN do you pull together, and when not.

You run the risk of changing the meaning of a word completely if you're not careful!

I meant when you pull words together to make a big word, then there's something wrong with it and you have to change something in the middle. But now I find out that you don't always pull them together and you have to decide whether it's a pull-together time or not ... Never mind. I'm getting a headache.-)
