Email notification doesnt get translated

Hi guys,

when a user buys a product, in my case via Multisafepay (just a payment method here in Holland), the user gets an email with the products he bought.

But the subject of the email is "COM_VIRTUEMART_MAIL_SUBJ_SHOPPER_", without the P or the C. In my translation file it is translated. But seems to me Virtuemart doesnt add a P or C at the end.

Next thing is: The status doesnt get translated. It just says: The status of your order is.. Not confirmed, pending or whatever.

Thanks in advance!

EDIT: Another question regarding the same topic. Some of my sentences and words don't get translated either. Example: When I view my order in the VM backend, and want to change there status, it states Confirmed, Pending, Cancelled etc., where it should say "Bevestigd" etc. in Dutch. Same goes for the email wich the user gets - as described in my first question - but then again, that doesn't get translated at all.

I've also been sneaky enough to just translate the English files to Dutch, but that doesnt work as I expected. Then where are the translations for those words, as they don't get translated in the English version :P
