You could use external files with the translations (the Qt tr/trUtf8 
functions) and keep everything in the code English (which is recommended btw, 
even Guido van Rossum, native Dutch has that opinion).

However, it still shouldn't be a problem to use them. I've just tried it with 
Eric4 - 4.0-snapshot-20061222 on a Windows machine and that worked without a 
problem, I can't test it on my Linux machine since I didn't compile all that 
stuff in, I don't need it and I don't use it (altough I am Dutch). If I need 
to use something like that I usually just get the special character screen, 
with KDE it shouldn't be much of a hassle though, is it working in all the 
other programs?
