Does your Outlook speak a Foreign Language?

If you have a non-English edition of Microsoft Outlook, I need your help!

Here at Xobni, some of our algorithms and heuristics rely on Outlook speaking English. Unfortunately for our software, but fortunately for us, a very significant percentage of our users work with non-English versions of Outlook.

Since our Pirate Testing Lab and our impressive farm of happy virtual machines contains only English-language Outlook installs, I need your help.

If you have a non-English edition of Outlook, please leave a comment with the following:
  • Your country, the language, and version (2003/2007) of your Microsoft Outlook
  • The names that your edition of Outlook uses for:
    1. Inbox
    2. Outbox
    3. Sent Items
    4. Deleted Items
    5. Drafts
    6. Junk E-Mail
    7. RSS Feeds
    8. Search Folders
    9. Calendar
  • The prefix that your Outlook adds to the subject on an email you reply to. For example, in English this is "Re:". In German this is "Aw:". In Italian, this is "R:"
  • The prefix for "Reply All". In English this is "RE:"
  • The prefix for "Forward". In English this is "FW:"
  • (Extra credit): The prefixes Outlook uses when someone accepts or declines your appointment, or sets attendance to tentative. In English, this is "Accepted:", "Declined:" and "Tentative:"

Thanks so much – your help is greatly appreciated!

Moin Gabor, gehe davon aus, dass Du keine Deutsche Übersetzung benötigst ... wenn, ich Dir doch mit den entsprechenden deutschen Begriffen helfen kann, dann melde Dich einfach bei mir.

Best regards from Berlin, Phil

Phil - yes, I do actually need the German strings. I don't actually own a German copy of Outlook.

Thanks for your help!

Take into account that maybe differences between the Spanish(spain) locale version of Outlook and other Spanish locale versions like Spanish(Venezuela), Spanish(México) and so on.

But be carefull, the subject-prefix can be configured to use the english version. This is at least what I do in my german version.
