Dragon Dictionary Update

Our Dragon dictionary page is complete! With over 615 words, most of them officially translated, it is our biggest dictionary to date. It includes all words from Skyrim as well as new ones added by Elder Scrolls Online’s Season of the Dragon this year. 

While several other places already have big dictionaries, I wanted to make sure that ours reflected only official translations whenever possible. Official translations, here, mean ones provided by Bethesda directly and preferably out of character, such as in Creation Kit script notes or as part of the Prima official guides. This helps keep things as accurate as possible, as idiomatic translations sound good but aren’t always accurate when translated back. For example: wahlaan is officially translated as create/build. However, in Dragon Language: Myth No Morewahlaan is translated back to English as “raised.” While “raised this stone” has the same meaning as “created/built this stone,” “raised a child” or “raised the sea” does not.
