Remarks to the file AMLAanvullendeInfo.Pdf : Namen van noten, accidenties en toongeslachten in Nederlands, Duits, Engels, Frans)

The layout is suggesting that A = Do in french (and B = Re etc.) That's wrong of course: it should be: A = La   B = Si  C = Do etc.

The german name of B doubleflat is NOT Bes, but HESES. 
Names of the intervals in german:
Prime Sekunde Terz Quarte Quinte Sexte Septime Okave None Dezime Undezime etc.

Keep in mind: english: (and spanish) relative = dutch: parallel  german: Parallele
                      english (and spanish) parallel = dutch gelijknamig  german: gleichnamig

The rest of the text is about the relative vs. absolute Do. You all know about that, I think..

chord symbols  (translation of the file AMLAkkoordsymbolen.Pdf)

chords (in fact: the root of chords) are written in capitals: C G F etc.
a capital without addition means: major triad
minor triads are indicated by 'm' or '-'
minor seventh: addition of '7'  ;  major seventh: addition of 'maj7'
often no clear distinction is made between a dimished triad and a diminished seventh chord

halfverminderd=half diminished
kleingroot=minor/major (minor triad+maj7)
