It's a UNIX thing. The "Changed" (ctime) is updated when the file 
metadata is changed (owner, permissions, etc.) or the contents of the 
file changed. The "Modified" (mtime) is only when the contents changed, 
but is not affected by changing metadata of the file.

I have no idea how you'd translate that though since they're synonyms 
even in English. The technical names are 'mtime', 'ctime' and 'atime', 
if that helps.
