Thank you for your valuable contributions, Jeppe! Like

I'll look over my post and correct typos and misspellings and obvious translations mistakes (or misunderstandings) asap.

Those translation files were gathered in the internet, I've asked members for help - and for retranslation. A mix thrown together, gathered from memory and copied several times - mistakes included.

And it's still developing if I can get new information! Very Happy

Aight aight aight.

Afair Nightrunner's name is StormFJED, I'll look into a better retranslation but it is indeed "Storm" and fjed has to do with speed.

So "wily" has a tendencially negative and "crafty" a positive meaning?

I've fixed the Danish list. Smile

Additions, contributions of any sort and discussions welcome!

Well, if you ask me "crafty" is a more positively loaded word, as opposed to wily.

Squanderbuttock is the best word I have ever read. I think it also describes Boris Johnson perfectly

So far for now ... I might gather what I can find in the threads somewhen later.
Maybe even Japanese names - just for fun! geek

Thank you, Zinegirl! Very Happy ... for reminding me of this thread and for feeding it.

I must actually reed the new German versions and gather the name translations.
