Some simple examples that don't match up:

9   EEN STUK VLEES      14  A PIECE OF MEAT       15    -1

Or do these fit anyway?

The solution is :
WHISKEY BOTTLE
A MILK BOTTLE
PIECE OF MEAT

Trying to solve it this way on all affected strings will degrade the translation. I'm in favour of marking those strings and applying some manual after-processing.

BTW, has anyone contacted the copyright owner with the request to be allowed to publish a translated version? As this forum is more catholic than the Pope on distributing copyrighted materials, and somehow I guess it will be granted without a problem.

Just release the translation as IPS patch, so no one can argue about copyright flimflam...

If you translate "GULDEN" with "DOLLAR", shouldn't you then use American English?

Some ideas to improve...

ALS MEDEWERKER VAN DE DIEREN-HULP-ORGANISATIE IS HET UW TAAK UIT TE ZOEKEN OF HIER EEN MISDAAD IN HET SPEL IS. - AS AN EMPLOYEE OF THE ANIMAL HELP ORGANIZATION IT IS YOUR JOB TO EXAMINE IF A CRIME IS COMING INTO PLAY. --> IT IS YOUR JOB TO DETERMINE WHETHER A CRIME WAS COMMITTED.
HIER LIGT NIETS MEER. - THERE'S NOTHING HERE. ->> NOTHING LEFT HERE.
WELCOME AT "ZOO" -> WELCOME TO "ZOO"
SUCCES, EN.... PAS OP! --> GOOD LUCK, TAKE CARE!

I had indicated in my file the texts that I can not change the length. No problem for these texts.

Ah yes, I see.. Smile
Free time is sparse, but I could probably have another look at some text this evening myself.

So regarding the lines that have to fit.. Would it be possible with some more (advanced) hacking to overcome these limitations?

The texts look fine to me gdx. I have made some changes thanks to manuel.

DEZE DANKBARE GEMS --> comma can be removed

Change : IS YOUR JOB TO EXAMINE IF A CRIME IS COMING INTO PLAY. to IT IS YOUR JOB TO DETERMINE WHETHER A CRIME WAS COMMITTED
Change : THERE'S NOTHING HERE. to NOTHING LEFT HERE.
Change GODSPEED, WATCH IT! to GOOD LUCK, TAKE CARE!
Change "WELCOME AT "ZOO", to "WELCOME TO "ZOO",

I believe it's not 'perfect' yet.
For starters:

 EEN NOTA VAN EEN POT GIF (BEWIJS!) - A RECEIPT OF POISON (EVIDENCE!) [moved to 9F77h]

-> A RECEIPT OF A JAR OF POISON (EVIDENCE!)

(if that still fits that is.)
