Step 1 : if possible start with a clean database (avoid uninstalling). + fill in your company name.

It's a piece of cake :-)

PS : Creating new accounts many accountants will happen by the duplicate feature, but this also copies  the translation. This is the collateral damage of the translations, iin the future it would be nicer that the account scheme could also be used in 1 language  because reporting to the Belgium authorities is also done in only one language (dutch of french).

  Hi Olivier,

thank you for pointing me in the right direction!

Below the procedure with the steps to take and the selections to make :

1. if accounting modules are installed: uninstall all accounting modules 
(dutch: boekhouding, boekhouding en financiën) -> all data will be lost !!!
2. install nl_BE as supported language (Flemmish (BE)/ Vlaams (BE) )
3. set nl_BE as default language for the administrator
4. install the module België - Boekhouding (l10n_be)
     select: belgië - boekhouding
     select: PCMN
     accept the other options and finish the installation of the module
5. install the module "Boekhouding en financiën"
6. et voila ... there they are!
