Why is the word 'avenue' used in the '_e' tag in a theme?

  • As I was editing a theme today, I came across a strange usage of the _e tag for language translation. The tag looks like this:

    <?php _e('Autor: ','avenue'); ?>

    The language appears to be German, but I don’t know what ‘avenue’ means. The word ‘Autor’ is not translated into English for me, instead it displays as ‘Autor’. What does the word avenue mean? Why doesn’t the _e tag correctly translate Autor?

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.
