Translation Assistant

This is a list of words and phrases found in discussions about kites, flying kites, and building kites. Typically, many of these terms are translated poorly (if at all) by computer-based translation services such as Google Language Tools. The computer translation may be correct in some sense, but may not be what would normally be used in the context of building kites. Many terms, such as product brand names, are the same in all or most languages, and so do not need to be added here.
