Simple dictionaries don't care that much about style.

I can see Valeri's point, but I'm amused about the bikeshed.

However, I read "coder" way more often than "programmer" on computer
and/or audio related mailing lists and forums and Dict confirms that
both are allegedly correct translations for "Programmierer".

English                           │Deutsch
programmer                        │Programmierer {m}
coder                             │Programmierer {m}
programer [Am.]                   │Programmierer {m}
computer programmer [jobs] [comp.]│Programmierer {m}
programmers                       │Programmierer {pl}

In Germany it's inappropriate to say "Mucke" instead of "Musik", but a
lot of people don't care and call it "Mucke". At least Dict mentions
"ugs." = "colloquial". For "coder" there's no such hint as "coll." or
"vulg." or something else.

English                           │Deutsch
music [mus.]                      │Musik {f}
music [mus.]                      │Mucke {f} [ugs.] [Musik]
