In the german language light and easy is the same word, maybe also in romanian thats why there is the mistake probably.

I think you may be right -- "slight" could also mean "ușoară".

I'm curious too...but I think must be almost a flu, or a light flu.

There is no such thing as light flu. The English joke about man flu every time a man gets a cold but influenza or the flu is a VERY serious illness. It kills people in a weak condition. I was ill with it for 2 months and I have never known anything like it.

"easy cold" is wrong unless there is some context.

Cold with symptoms, but that is not incapacitating - can still go to work

Slight cold,not a heavy cold

Ușor is the opposite of greu. The opposite of heavy is light. So I read this as "He has a light cold."
