Wrong translation! The German word "Diener" means servant, not slave (German
"Sklave"), so there's no political incorrectness at all to use this word.

BTW: recently I came across another German word in CDM Fletcher's book:
"zellballen". I'm wondering how many other German words are used by
pathologists or histologists.
