The independent naming of components of injectisome-type type III secretion systems in different bacterial species has resulted in considerable confusion, impeding accessibility of the literature and hindering communication between scientists of the same field. A unified nomenclature had been proposed by Hueck more than 20 years ago. It found little attention for many years, but usage was sparked again by recent reviews and an international type III secretion meeting in 2016. Here, we propose that the field consistently switches to an extended version of this nomenclature to be no longer lost in translation.
