Mh... should we contact the i18n for this issue?
According to wikipedia (the german one) nds is the abbrev. for
the "Niederdeutsche Sprache" or also called "Plattdüütsch" [1].

There is also a niederdeutsche Version of wikipedia [2].

For explanation:
We use a nds.po in debian-edu-install which is deteced by lintian as a
wrong named .po file. I've deteced this (among other linitan
errors/warnings) while building debian-edu-install for debian.
