La traducción más común es cloth y se refiere de forma genérica al material del que están hechas las cosas. Material y fabric se aplican a las telas usadas en sastrería y tapicería. Fabric es una palabra más técnica y a menudo describe una tela de distintos colores. Como tela, cloth es incontable, mientras que fabric y material pueden ser tanto incontables como contables.
