    Data format...
    German term | English term (optional) / alternative term [Source, comments, etc.]
    ----------------------------------------------------------

    Bienenkiste | Bienenkiste (bee) hive
    [Note about the name. It is desirable to maintain the "Bienenkiste" name. As a proper name, it should always be capitalized; first mention may require a pronunciation guide (e.g. "BEE-nen-KISS-te). The name "Bienenkiste" may stand alone, but because the inherent meaning ("Kiste" - box) is lost, it is usually best to write "Bienenkiste hive" or similar. To prevent misuse, it may be desirable to consider trademark registration in one or more countries.]
