Since I work in Germany most of my programs incl. Windows are in German. Often though I need the exact English used in software, e.g. when a manual refers to Windows settings. Is there a D-> E glossary of the text and legends used in Windows operating systems and other common Microsoft programs. Does Microsoft make this info available to the likes of us?

If you... May 28, 2009
