    Colours

    All the colours of the rainbow and even more!! Colours shape our world into what it is. Why not compile a list in as many languages as possible as a tribute?

    I might need help with format so it looks nice and 'colourful'.

    Re: Colours

    I added Portuguese and some Hungarian. And I also colored the letters so people can guide from that too

    Re: Colours

    I love colours, too! I added Catalan and completed Spanish. In "oro" I added "dorado", as I think that both are used, just like in "silver".

    I've got some problems at distinguishing "purple" and "violet", though... I think I would say the same in both, but I added some more specific terms.

    Re: Colours

    As I said before, I colored the letters to distinguish the colors. About purple and violet, violet I say it's lighter than purple, so it would be "light purple"

    Good job, Robbie! The sheet looks much better now. I've added turquoise in Russian, Polish and Dutch but I can't be bothered looking for a proper translation of mauve. Anyone eager to add vanilla, claret and terracotta?

    Re: Colours

    Oh.
    I didn't think you might take my suggestion seriously.

    Well, as you see, vanilla is practically the same in all languages. The same would happen if we took terrakotta, beige or khaki, I suppose.
