Spanish translation not correct about AIS

Hi,

when right click on a AIS target and this is a "Tanker" in Spanish shown as "Petrolero", that is not correct.

Why this?
English > Spanish
Tanker > Buque Tanque - this is the correct translation because it includes all kind of tankers

and now the specific ones, only as general knowledge, and not specifically included in the AIS messages: (*)
Oil Tanker > Petrolero (in general including Product tankers, derived from Oil cracking and not defined as chemicals)
Gas Tanker > Gasero (including LNG, LEG, LPG, etc)
Chemical Tanker > Quimiquero
Sometimes LNG vessels want to be differentiated from Gas tankers
LNG Tanker > Metanero


(*)
Quote:
80 Tanker, all ships of this type
81 Tanker, Hazardous category A
82 Tanker, Hazardous category B
83 Tanker, Hazardous category C
84 Tanker, Hazardous category D
85 Tanker, Reserved for future use
86 Tanker, Reserved for future use
87 Tanker, Reserved for future use
88 Tanker, Reserved for future use
89 Tanker, No additional information
from 81 to 89 used to be included depending of construction and cargo related in the Fitness Certificate mostly Chemical Tankers but all them could be pointed as "Buque Tanque"

Thanks Hubert,

I'll try the link, I have to say too, what I checked, the Spanish is very precise and correct, maybe as in other languages it could be some "landlubber" words, but I guess if we use classic maritime words English/Spanish, the most of the "crew" could be lost because they have never heard/used such a word.

When I was in the Nautical School (Dinosaurs still walked the Earth) there was an academic discussion about which maritime English and maritime Spanish should be considered dialects of their mother tongue and especially for use in maritime law.
It must be said that much of this vocabulary has been lost.
(this is truly a maritime heritage of English/Spanish culture that needs to be preserved)

Well if you have a ship with a strong enough hull when you collide with one of them and put a hole in it, better if you don't, but just in case, choose the one with the least risk.

Oil Tanker maybe you can make a big oil slick.
Chem tanker maybe you could be disolved
Gas Tanker sure you'll blow directly to heaven/hell
