The English term for abstract is translated to the Danish term "sammendrag". While this is a correct translation in some contexts, this is not one of them. The correct term in this context is: "abstrakt".

This is _not_ just a meaningless fight over words. Danish SW developers will not understand what is meant by "sammendrag". I had to start the English version to figure it out.

The term "sammendrag" appears in two places. As a class wide property and as a per-method property.
