    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'.

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

    I love colours, too! :D 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... :eek: I think I would say the same in both, but I added some more specific terms.

    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. :D Anyone eager to add vanilla, claret and terracotta?

    I have added vanilla in all the languages I know.

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

    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. :rolleyes:

    Translated vanilla as "vanilya rengi" but I doubt if it's actually called kavuniçi or yavru ağzı in Turkish.

    I came across a Basque dictionary, so I added the colours in Basque. Do we have any Basque-spaeking members here??

    Could the next who changes it correct the Italian word for grey, please? It's grigio, bigio is a very unusual word.

    Done. This is what I added:

    Purple - fiolett / lilla
    Mauve - lilla
    Violet - fiolett

    There seems to be quite some vagueness about the purple/violet thing in a lot of languages; could this possibly be because of the background colours used? Though it seems the terms are used pretty interchangably in Norwegian, perhaps it's as simple as that?

    (I also split Norwegian nto Bokmål and Nynorsk, hope that's ok).

    Yes, Lemminkäinen... Most kids are unsure of what you mean here when saying "fiolett"... They just don't know what it is...

    The word for "colour" in french is couleurs, and in chinese is "色" pronounce : sè.
    I want to say i am not a native chinese speaker but found it was interesting to have the colours in chinese in this thread, so if a chinese speaker want to correct anything... I learned the basic colours and i knew them but needed a dictionnary to fill in the other colours.
    I also added beige/crème in french, i hope "beige" can be consider the same colour as cream...
    I also tried to change the order of apparition of the colours so that it seems as a rainbow...

    to essam darwish : your attached file does not reflect the announced content... I suppose it is just an error of "uploading the bad file"... If you can check that :) it would be great :)

    A remark to the colours in German:

    The colour "gold" is better referred to as "goldfarben", not "golden". Golden is rather used figuratively, for example in goldene Hochzeit, goldene Zeiten, goldene Regel.

    Analogous metallic colours: silberfarben/silberfarbig (silver-coloured), kupferfarben/kupferfarbig (copper-coloured), bronzefarben/bronzefarbig (bronze-coloured), messingfarben/messingfarbig (brass-coloured)

    Also: silbergrau (silver-grey), messinggelb (yellow like brass), kupferbraun (brown with a red lustre)

    Violet, purple and mauve are often referred to as violett or lila without differentiation. More correct would be: violet = violett, purple = purpur, purpurfarben, mauve = fliederfarben (literally "lilac-coloured").

    Hello all.

    In Turkish you can say "turuncu" for "orange".
