      Description

      On the user mailing list, the concepts of 'vendor' vs. 'supplier' were discussed and as a matter of fact, many labels in the German translation files of OFBiz are pointing to the term 'Lieferant' for both, especially the role select-boxes in the Party Manager application.
      As this is confusing and sharper terms can be found and defined in German for these two roles as well, this Issue will track the implementation of such 'sharpened' working in the translation files of all applications.

        Vendor in German is most likely a "Verkäufer" or "Anbieter". I would vote for "Verkäufer".

        What do you think?

        Ok, so we have three terms already:

        Supplier --> Lieferant
        Distributor --> Großhändler
        Vendor --> Verkäufer

        Any more ?

        If not, I shall create the label files and submit.

        I think too that Vendor=Verkäufer makes sense in the OFBiz context -> patch committed
