French, Polish, Dutch Updated Translations of NetBeans Platform

Mixing existing translations from the community translation project with new supplemental translations, as described here, we now have NetBeans Platform translations updated to Polish, French, and Dutch during the last few days:

French, by Constantin Drabo:

Polish by Sławek Mikuła:

Dutch by me:

If you want these translations as the basis of your own work, let me know in the comments to this blog entry. We're collecting the translations at, which is currently only accessible if you're a member of the project. We'll open the site soon so anyone can access it.

Even the above are not complete translations yet, we're just focusing on the visible texts that we see as we look through the menus, dialogs, etc, of the NetBeans Platform. It's a slightly haphazard process but better than nothing. Translators who complete the 'platform' translation, then start working on the 'ide' translation, which is a separate application on top of 'platform', followed by 'javase', etc, etc, one step at a time, until all of the IDE is translated.

The focus of this blog is mostly on NetBeans (a development tool primarily for Java programmers), with an occasional reference to NetBeans, and sometimes diverging to topics relating to NetBeans. And then there are days when NetBeans is mentioned, just for a change.
