Okay, me again, should've tried Google Translator first..
The "aneb" in "Dune 3 aneb Achtung! Die Kurve" apparently means "or" in Czech, so it makes sense.
Either way, since the version hosted here is the DOS version, I think it should be either "Zatacka" or "Achtung, die Kurve!", with all the other ones as alternative titles. Having "Dune 3" in the main title is kinda confusing for people looking for Dune games etc.

The title for this game is wrong.
My Abandonware most likely pulls its game info from MobyGames, which has the exact same wrong title: https://www.mobygames.com/game/dos/dune-3-aneb-achtung-die-kurve
No idea where the "aneb" in that wrong title came from, but even without that it would be the title for the Amiga version.
The correct titles are:
"Achtung, die Kurve!" (German title for the 1995 MS-DOS version)
"Zatacka" (Czech title)
"Curve Fever" (English title, seems to have caught on more since the modern ports/browser ports of the game came out)
"Dune 3 – Achtung! Die Kurve…" (German release title for the _1993 Amiga_ version (according to the German Wikipedia page) - wtf?, the "Dune 3" was probably just a joke back then, like Half-Life 3 is nowadays, haha)
I have absolutely no idea why the German title caught on instead of the Czech title "Zatacka" - I mean, the 2 developers were/are Czech after all!
Even the Czech Wikipedia page has this German title as the main title - it's really weird. I played this myself with friends about 12-13 years ago and just a few years ago found out that the other title is actually "Zatacka".
If you know more, please try to add that to the Wikipedia pages! :)
