Thank you, I did use "politisch korrekt" in the end, although I still believe, it sounds best in original version, but thanks for all the links and all the options.

Politisch korrekt


Explanation:
I've noticed now that the URL's I've pointed you to aren't really reliable.
But the term is, despite the fact that

I hope it helps,
