Thanks Brimstone. In Spanish, when a friend of ours talks about a Kawasaki rose and that it starts from a twist fold, how do they usually say it?

They say "giro Kawasaki" which is incorrect because Kawasaki didn't invent the twist, people around here just got to know it because of the rose but the move had been around for many years prior to that.

I didn't know that. I can see how that can be problematic. Do they also call them "giro Kawasaki" when referring to the twist folds used in some tessellations?

I'll browse a bit for tessellations on Spanish websites.

Yes they do but it's a mistake since Kawasaki didn't create the square twsit.

I'll use the literal translation "pliegue de giro", which I had actually already used in a Neorigami article a couple of years ago. I just didn't remember. Thanks for your help Brimstone.
