On my list I saw a "morning coat", which was a playing card. There was another one that I can't remember what it was, but yes, the translation leaves a lot to be desired.

Thanks to both of you for pointing out the translating errors. This is one of my pet peeves. Assuming developers put so much effort into creating games, one would think they would hire a better translator! Due to this problem, and the very dark screenshots, it is not one I'll be looking at.

P.S. Nice to see you Valdy!

I noticed the "watering can" and "morning coat" ones also. I suppose a watering can could look like a bell - if the can is just a small round container with a straight spout. The "morning coat"...when I found the card, I tried to look at the picture on it to see if it WAS of a morning coat but it (and the watering can) disappeared from the screen so quickly I couldn't tell.

Same here! I hate having to use hints but ended up having to several times because the objects were mislabled. Surprised that the folks who did a pre demo before the game got put out for sale did not point that out to the Devs in their eveluation.

In addition to the above mentioned, I also found "stitch" which
looked like an awl, and "broach" which was actually a stickpin.

I've been using the mouseover to see the shapes when I can't
find an item right away.

That was the other one I couldn't remember. I had "stitch" in my inventory list, and wondered at the time what on earth that could be, but used that thingy at the right that shows you the outline of what you are looking for, and saw the shape of an awl.

PS: Hi Angelofmusic. Nice to see you too.
