Lightbulb English to German wire color codes

I installed my stereo and am now tracing the left side marker lights on the factory wiring diagrams. Figured out that the color abbreviations are for the colors in german. So I thought I would share this list as I haven't found this information anywhere else.
PHP Code:
English        German        Abbreviation
yellow        gelb        GE
white        weib        WS
red        rot        RT
brown        braun        BR
green        grun        GN
black        schwartz    SW 
weib might be incorrect, the translator had some character on there I did not know. That is the best columns I can do with the vB codes.
