Dutch term or phrase:vanaf die datum subsidiabel zijn
Op 20 juni 2000 werd het Gentse programma iontvankelijk verklaard waardoor de kosten van de projecten die door het Managementcomité zijn goedgekeurd, vanaf die datum subsidiabel zijn.
I can't seem to make the sentence make sense with the last clause. Is there something amiss or is it me?
Explanation: subsidisable is a non-existent English word. I said so because the Chambers Dictionary (which is very complete) does not list the word. I see that it is, however, being extensively used in practice (Google). So I should have said: the word subsidisable has not yet found its way into the dictionaries.
No hard feelings I hope, Sven!
