Great progress! Some suggestions:

CARKEYS > CAR KEYS
AN EURO > A EURO
THE DIRECTORS AGENDA > THE DIRECTOR'S AGENDA
A NOTE OF A POISON JAR > RECEIPT OF A POISON JAR
A TAPE BAND > A CASSETTE TAPE
AN REVOLVER > A REVOLVER
THE COMBINATION OF A COMBINATION LOCK > THE COMBINATION LOCK CODE
ELTON JOHNS > ELTON JOHN'S
FURTHER MORE > FURTHERMORE

Furthermore the capitalization details were lost in this text document, not sure if it can be added back easily as there are also capitals mid-sentence (e.g. personal names).

As I already commented I don't think all strings will fit. Replacing foundation with founding just doesn't sound right and probably there will be others. Perhaps these can be cut off in the programmatic process and then manually corrected - that's doable as long as the number of strings to be corrected stays low.

What does ("S"=D3h) mean behind SOME KIND OF FORM. ? Do I need to do something with this or is it a remark for yourself ?

It just a remark for the first character because the bit 7 must be set. Do not take this into account.

@Hrotgar: Thanx for your suggestion, I've updated the txt file. I will try too keep the textlenghts in mind, and will put comments where a problem arises (like with foundation aka founding).

Does the translated text length have to be <= original Dutch text length, or is there some room to play with (here & there)?

@ren: If the english text is smaller that's okay, larger is the problem. That's why I had to walk through all translated texts again to make sure the length is the same or less.

Ok, I've gone through line 1 to 100, and made some improvements (debatable) and corrections.
If you like this, I can do some more tomorrow Smile

Btw: I did finish this game, and know some contexts (that helps of course Wink), though can't remember everything exactly. (Though I could check Vampier's speed run on YT of course.. Wink)
