PostSubject: By any other name ...   Mon Jun 08, 2015 12:41 am

When ElfQuest was translated to different languages elf names were translated, too. I always was curious about the names given to the Wolfriders in special in other countries and very interested in the retranslation as well!

This is what I had gathered - with lots of help by tribemates - on EQ.com. Elf names in all our mother tongues...

I've listed all the names which were translated most probably. Feel free to add what's forgotten.

@Jeppe wrote:
In regards to Cutter (And I would LOVE to get a discussion going on this!!!):
As much as the Danish world "Ilder" does indeed mean ferret/polecat, I always felt there was more to it than just that. Right from the get go I always pronounced it with a hard d instead of the silent one, as a play on the word "Ilter" (for the non-Danes: feisty/fiery/hotheaded/temperamental it can be a positive and a negative).
I'm fairly certain (from a character/story perspective) that a well meaning translator kinda fucked it up and we ended up with the written word "Ilder" to connect him to nature through giving him an animal name, but through his connotation were meant to also connect him with the meaning "Ilter". It's late and I'm having a hard time being legible, but if my point came across, join in the discussion


@Redhead Ember wrote:
Alright... I'm gonna hijack this and list what the characters would've been named in Danish if their names had simply been translated directly, in some cases this is actually what their names has been translated as. I'm - mainly - using Google Translate, and splitting names into their "parts".
Look at page 2 for Redhead's additional translations! Ember

- the Wolfriders - les Maîtres-loups - the wolf masters
- the Sunfolk - le Peuple du soleil - the People of the Sun

- the Go-backs - les Revenants - the returning ones
- the forbidden grove - la forêt interdite - the forbidden forest
- Madcoil - Furian - ???

Because I'm buying the single issues in English, I'm waiting with buying the Dutch translations until there's a book. So, no Wavedancer translations available so far (at least from me).
Anyway, I'll look up the tribes&locations translations.

English original - translation(s) - retranslation to English


Brill - no translation known yet
Snakeskin - no translation known yet
Surge - no translation known yet 


Drub - Drab - not directly translatable I think, but "synonym" "drek" translates as dirt/dung
Flam - Vlerk - Wing, Brat


Sorrow's End - Zorgeloos - Carefree
Blue Mountain - Blauwe Berg - Blue Mountain
Forbidden Grove - Verboden Bos - Forbidden Forest

Wolfriders - Wolfrijders - Wolfriders
Sunfolk - Zonnevolk - Sun folk
