This is an attempt at providing a translation of musical terms names in the most used languages to express them (in classical works at least, but feel free to add columns) (translations taken from Wikipedia's "other languages" section). Very useful when trying to be consistent, some sleeves are not (unappropriate use of movement type name, mix of different languages...).
