During recent tests I noticed that the NL-BE translation of the "education" phrases needs some attention.
In general I have two questions about this:

(1) Under which conditions are the different phrases generated?  

    There are at least 5 different phrases defined in the dictionary: PhEducation, PhEducationStudying, PhEducationTerminationTxt, PhEducationTxt and PhEducationTxtStudying
    but during my initial tests I was only able to produce the first one, PhEducation.
    Under which conditions are the other phrases generated?
    
(2) I also tried to translate the enumerations used by the GUI, but I could only locate "Termination" (EducationTermination) and "StudyType".  I could not find the lists for "EducationLevel", "Years" nor "Achievement".

Personally, I do not use the "individual education properties".  The mechanism is probably very useful for modern style education, but when you need to document that "in 1783, at the age of 12, an individual went to local blacksmith for an apprenticeship", this is way too complex (for me).  Initially I tried to use only the "education comment" block without filling any other fields, but the report generator is not happy with this.  So finally, I dropped all of the education properties and I'm using the general comments block for this type of educational information.

On the other hand I cannot leave the NL-BE dictionary in the current state, causing the report generator to produce sentences that make no sense.

I don't have a Windows device with me this week so cannot fully answer this now regarding Education phrases but personally I would consider an apprenticeship as 'learning on the job' and therefore I would choose the Occupation tab instead e.g. 'Apprentice Blacksmith'

Well its taken a while digging into old code etc. to answer this query.  

Firstly Dictionary phrases with 'Txt' are used by the Descendants Report only.

The two phases with a 'Studying' suffix are examples of using a 'feature' for an alternative phrase indicated by the setting of the NarrativeStyle custom tag.  This was documented some 14 years ago in this thread http://support.genopro.com/Topic20356.aspx w00t

I think those with 'Termination' are used when the education Termination tag is set to other then 'Still Attending', but have ot tested this.

Level, Level.Years and Achievement are not enumerated fields in the GenoPro sense as they can be overridden by the users own text and so do not appear in the list of enumerations that can be translated. The drop down list associated with these fields could be considered as a suggested list of possible values whereas an enumerated field has a fixed list of values. 

Values in the suggests list are reported via PhEL_? (level) and PhEA_? (Achievement) where ? is the suggested value. User set values are reported via PhEL and PhEA phrases. Level.Years does not appear to be used in the Narrative or Descendants Report

I have a vague recollection that one or more of there were once GenoPro enumerations but were changed as a result of a forum request.  But I may be wrong here and probably I am Unsure

Thank you for having looked at this, Ron.
I'll add the necessary comments to both the dictionary and my check lists so I don't have to ask it again in 10 years or so.
