I was wondering about certain musical terms in other languages? do they stay the same? I know certain words in Italian are used universally in music such as "tempo" or "forte". What about chord names like...

E major

C suspended 4th aka Csus4

G minor 7 flat 5 aka Gm7b5

F diminished or F augmented

etc.

Say in Spanish, Portuguese, German, Italian, French or whatever etc. I suspect they remain the same but need to ask as I don't know. I know there's a lot of teachers and students here from different parts of the world (who might also have some non-English material with this stuff in) so thought this would be the best place to ask. I can only think of chord names at the moment but if there's anything I haven't though of I'd be interested to know.

Thanks. I was also wondering do song names such as the following, get translated from English to foreign languages?

Achy Breaky Heart (Billy Ray Cyrus)
Blowin’ in the Wind (Bob Dylan)
Love Me Do (The Beatles)
Wild Thing (The Troggs)

I would have thought not, on the basis that if translating the actual song, the lyrics would no longer fit rhythmically? Another way of me asking would be, when you listen to the radio in a non English speaking country how would the presenter introduce these songs?
