Well, in English, there is the (remarkably similar) term "calender year", having exactly the same definition as "Kalenderjahr", ie. to differentiate between the period of a year (2 points in time roughly 365 days apart) and an actual year, eg. 2005.

    There is also the "fiscal year"/"calendar year" difference, which has nothing to do with a duration... Gotta love English? Hence I avoid the "calendar year" phrase and just refer to fiscal years when needed. When something "takes a year", calendar year is implicit.
