Default Stupid Question. A 17x7.5 with a ET48. What does the ET mean?

I understand that 17x7.5 with a 48mm offset, but what does ET in front of the offset mean? Thanks
As in 17x7.5 with a ET48.

Just found out that it means offset in German. Nothing is different about the offset. ET48 or 48, is still a 48mm offset. John
