Color names Database
Can we have a new database for just colors?
A lot of times, I see a draft in another language (like German or Scandinavian), but the colors do not translate.
A general idea of which color family would be helpful to me. I know that there is a technical difference between sky blue and turquoise, but they are both light blue, as apposed to true blue, or navy blue
I propose using a 10-color system with the adjectives "Light, and Dark" and "sort of".... the "sort of" would indicate that this the color is approximate rather than a direct technical translation.
the colors in English would be RED, ORANGE, YELLOW, GREEN, BLUE, VIOLET, WHITE, BLACK, BROWN, GRAY
so... the German translation of pink would be "light red" (in german) and beige would be "Light brown" or " 'Sort of ' white "
I also suggest that we highlight or bold the original word that is getting translated into other languages to avoid the 'whisper game' or 'telephone game' effect. (you know... whisper something in one person's ear.. pass it on, .. and the last person says it out loud.... and the end result is nothing like the original. )
