German term or phrase: kWorte vs KBytes
In a software manual, in the same sentence, these two terms occur: ... einen externen Flashbaustein (IC2=16 Bit * 256 kWorte) als programmspeicher und zwei externe SRAM Bausteine (IC3/IC4=2*8Bit x 128kBytes) als Datenspeicher für die Meßdaten.

Thanks very much!
