3) I have succesfully transferred a 1.7 database to 1.8. The database is filled with Dutch contacts.
When my default country is the Netherlands (global settings/localisation) and also available countries and states/provinces are "Netherlands" my country pop up in edit contact shows "Nederland" (the translation of the Netherlands) AND "Netherlands". The default is "Nederland" You van select between the original country " Netherlands" and the translation "Nederland" When I leave the countrie "Nederland" the state/province shows the province of the contact selected in the original civicrm 1.7 version (stored in de db). That is correct, only the province pop up does not work and you can not change the province.
When i select "Netherlands" n the country pop up the "Nederland" tekst in the pop up dissapears,, the province pop-up goes to
select and when you click the pop up you can only select the first 5 provinces. (item 1)
