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 More, wahlaan 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.

Hi, I couldn't figure out any other way to contact you guys, but I've been using this site for several years. I just now made an account. Is there a way to become an admin on the site, if so I'd be proud to be a member of the Library.

Hey Khazar, welcome to the library! 

You've become a member of the library by creating an account :) Becoming an administrator (that is, a Librarian) requires showcasing above average lore knowledge and contributions to TIL that are both considerable and consistent. If you have something specific you'd like to help out with, please don't hesitate to reach out to me via PM or on Discord.
