        I think 'daltonism' and 'daltonian' are fairly rare in English and probably only occur in medical texts. I was certainly only able to guess what daltonian meant based on the fact that I knew what 'daltonisme' was in Catalan and when I asked James if he knew what it meant he replied 'eh? you what?'.

        Based on what is potentially just the general ignorance of the members of my household (when I asked Rebecca the same question she replied 'baa, baa, black sheep' and Benjamin replied 'waaaahh, waaaahh!'). I propose to enter just 'colour-blind (Br.)' / 'color-blind' (Am.) as the English equivalents.

        I agree - I had to look up "daltonian" and Jonathan didn't know it either. The cat refused to answer.

        By the way, the definition of daltonism is quite specific - red/green colour-blindness. Is there a more general, less "medical" term in Catalan for the whole spectrum (ha ha) of this disorder?
