I had copied this from the Dutch Wikipedia entry. There are still quite a number of Dutch phrases in the list (like: "Van de CD" (meaning "from the CD"). I simply had no time yet to translate it all, so appreciate if somebody would.

Other question: is there a way that the lists of Dutch and the French wikipedia are "synchronized" with this English entry, so all three lists remain as "complete" as possible?

There's no point in translating the Dutch that somebody has taken the trouble to input . You would have to be stupid not to understand what it all means in the context !! I mean after a title to say 'Van de CD' what else could it possibly mean but from the CD . I have made corrections and an addition to an artists list where I am an expert on that particular person but have left the Dutch linkages and not changed them to English . —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:24, 17 January 2009 (UTC)

Well: it is an *English* wikipedia and although "Van de CD" is indeed obvious, other bits are not that clear to non-Dutch speakers, e.g. the longer Dutch bits in Jenny Arean's entry:

  1. Kinderen van (Fils de; op het album 'Jenny Arean', 1986; met liedjes uit de voorstelling Gescheiden vrouw op oorlogspad) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Renebos (talkcontribs) 16:09, 23 January 2009 (UTC)
