In the Dutch language, we already use quite a lot of English terms. English
is also our second language and we add subtitles to English movies/TV shows
(hooray for that!).

A term like 'loop' could be translated as 'herhaling/herhalen', but 'loop'
is IMHO far more clear in it's meaning... It's even present in the Dutch
dictionary. (same goes for 'range')
