Please test with Lazarus trunk r63718.
My knowledge of localization stuff is limited. Is procedure CreateLangResource() really needed?
Your project had -dDisableUTF8RTL. Why?
I am attaching a simpler demo using a simple TEdit instead of TLabeledEdit and simple po files without access to resources which can pose problems on their own.
Running this (and your) demo on Windows does not show the issue. On Linux I cannot see it on qt5 either, but I do see it on gtk2 and on qt. On gtk2/qt I noticed that when I put the cursor into one of the LabeledEdits and then focus some other control the dutch translated text suddenly appears.
Therefore, I think this is not a translation issue but something related to widgetsets.

More precisely it is related to the emulated TextHint system in LCL, made for widgetsets like GTK2 that do not have a native TextHint.
I think I fixed it in r63718. I also simplified the code in r63725.
>Your project had -dDisableUTF8RTL. Why?
must have click that during experimenting. retested, on 2.0.6 no difference.
>Is procedure CreateLangResource() really needed?
yes, that unpacks the embedded resource into a usable translation file when the program is run from a location w here there is no translation file found.it is currently unix specific (using /tmp).
i will install Lazarus trunk r63718 and retest asap.
>On Linux I cannot see it on qt5 either, but I do see it on gtk2 and on qt.
i see the same behavior on gtk2 and qt5. when translated, clicking in the labelededit always brings up the translation for labelededit1. different issue, i think.

QT5 has a native TextHint. It behaves slightly differently than the emulated one. It is visible also when a control has focus but its Text=''.
IMO this is intuitive and nice.
If you see a bug there, please explain more.
Can someone guide me how to install Lazarus trunk r63718 or r63725?
I googled, but could not find how to do this.
i did install 2.0.10 from the deb files, but no change.
experimenting further, i reinstalled the 2.0.6 from the repositories as 2.0.10 installed from the deb file (lazarus-project_2.0.10-0_amd64.deb) gives me an error when selecting qt5.
2. 0.6 qt5 behaves as you state, so no issue there.

$ svn co https://svn.freepascal.org/svn/lazarus/trunk lazarus_trunk
Later update with
$ svn up
You can build it with the FPC version provided by your distro. Just run "make", then "./lazarus &". No installation needed. You can have many versions from SVN the same way.
Please ask more info about building etc. in forum or mailing list.

the good news is with this update the issue is solved.
