Hi Monte,

thanks for your answers.

I also checked on stackOverflow, it seems more people have trouble with 
it, to simplify the names for it's users. The names also differ per 
country/language it seems. Probably there will some kind of logic, but 
we don't see it yet.

I have no a recipe for the wrong language, but it has to do with how i 
programmed it. to be able to check what system language the user had 
set. I cleared that part of the script so i don't have it anymore 

Kind regards,
