Papiamento is the native language of the Dutch Caribbean islands Aruba, Curacao and Bonaire. The language has small variations on the different islands. Most of these variations are localized in pronounciation and since papiamento is mostly written phonetically, words are written differently. From the perspective of ISO language standards there is no distinction among these variations. It sees one exclusive language for all the islands, i.e. there has been one language code reserved for papiamento. The variation of the language which has been used in the Pootle translation corresponds with the language version spoken on Curacao.
