The English translation is a „version“ of the German template. The English version may give those without enough skills in German a better understanding.
Therefore the German Original is the only validated.

In German “Bart” is the collective term for all kind and shapes of facial hair. So if Germans talk about “Bart/beard” don’t wonder when they name a moustache or a whisker also a beard.
