I'm currently working on lynx, and see the problem with this.

Lynx is looking for a message formatted with parentheses in a particular way.
The message (to work with Lynx) should look something like this: koekje: =i Toestaan? (Ja, Nee, Altijd, V/Nooit)

The language file has a note to the translator; apparently that
was overlooked.  If the message uses parentheses in a different way,
then Lynx does not see the keywords, and assumes the untranslated form.
