Dialog(ue) menu / window


Explanation:
Would really need more context for others.
Assistenten = wizards

Try the glossaries on Frank Dietz's site

dialog box, etc.


Explanation:
The field is Microsoft terminology: Dialogfeld, Dialogfenster = dialog box
Kontrollfeld = check box (I think, I only have the US version, and am not 100% sure if that is indeed the Kontrollfeld)
Arbeitsplatz = workstation
Registereintrag = register entry (not 100% sure)
Verzeichnis = directory
Assistenten = assistants

What version of what program does this refer to exactly?

Explanation:
Dialogfeld und -fenster is the same, Dialogfenster not being the official Microsoft term. Arbeitsplatz is My Computer if you are referring to the icon on the Desktop.
If you are translating Microsoft terminology, load down the official glossaries (URL see below). That's were I've got the translations from.
