Wim,

Thanks for the explanation of the origins of your name, but help me
understand the significance of the "Gr." you place before it in your
signature line.

Hi Robert,

This is what I think you have done. In Event Templates you have set some
Danish Templates to English. This has resulted in two Event-Tags with the
same language-attribute. Somehow, GB picks the tag which has the Danish
template for the sentence and the labels.
You should go back to Event Templates and change the Danish templates to
Danish again. Setting the language for a template is done in the "Lang"-box
under the "Tag"-box
You can filter and group the Templates with the top-boxes in the "Show
Events Group:" section of the window.

Gr. Wim

PS. I think my name has confused you (and maybe even more people :-). Wim is
the dutch equivalent of Bill, both are derived from the German name
"Wilhelm" through Willem (or William in English).

PS2:
