For the seriously colour-blind translators. This English/Czech/Hungarian/French/German/Spanish list (including the corresponding colours and shades) may save your bacon one day.

Surely my female colleagues won\'t need this...

And here's another one (French only). Jan 23, 2003

Thank you very much, Paul. And just in case you need a colour dictionary, with many more colours, but only in French, here you are: Chroma, Dictionnaire des noms de couleurs. Best regards. MG.

Sacre bleu, MG!! Jan 23, 2003

I hadn\'t seen anything like this since Jarry\'s \"Ubu Roi\"!

Taken from MG\'s link above (merci bien mon pote), voilà le Dictionnaire Imaginaire:

http://www.pourpre.com/chroma/dici.php

2 Samples:

\"PAS-CHEZ-MOI: Couleur incertaine, cauchemar du webmaster... Couleur bien aimée d\'un certain client, que pour finir on préfère oublier... Superbe jaune sur mon bel écran pro calibré, bleu chez certains, vert chez d\'autres... Couleur à absolument ne jamais utiliser dans un site web! (nous ne divulguerons pas son code, pour éviter tout usage involontaire)



CHINCHARINE

(de chinchard: poisson assez insignifiant)

[~ rayonnante] oulipo Couleur des yeux du chinchard à l\'époque du rut - du 1/04 au 5/04 - fut observée en premier par Buffon, le 3/04/1786 - a donné lieu à de nombreuses imitations (Van Gogh, PL Sulitzer), toujours vaines. La chincharine est une couleur rare\".



Rare alright!!

Note also that as you rest your mouse over each colour sample, it gives you the hexadecimal code and the background shows the colour, letting you see what the colour looks like on a larger scale.



It\'s not only useful for colour name vocabulary, but also for choosing colours for your website.
