Today while translating very sexy things (ok no, car stuff) I found this colors chart, as it was available at the internet so I feel like tunning it and sharing with you. I find it so interesting.

[source: (Nissan - Qashqai 2014)] 

attention, polish learners, there are mistakes in gray and blue! the words given are adverbs while all the rest are adjectives!

Wow, thank you Idk why they did this, maybe a mistake? Happens to the best multinational I guess. 

It should be, correct me if I’m mistaken: niebyesky (blue) and shary (gray)

The Dutch translation of purple is “paars”, not “violet”. Scrolling the notes, there seem to be a lot of mistakes in this list…

I now, I have deleted it now, it had some big errors and it was a mistake on my part to put this wrong information here. 

I’m really sorry. Sadly I cannot help people to reblog it.
