Localization & Translation Error List


Recommended Posts

In Brood Chamber's Vetarex encounter, one of the messages that show in the beginning of the 70% and 40% mechanic phases contain a small typo. The message show after the boss has applied the Gaze of Discordia debuff to the furthest player.





Thanks in advance.

lol game is full of typos and skill descriptions that are hard to understand, also check Play Infografic Vetarex is named Wailing Archfiend there.

Yeah, I noticed Wailing Archfiend too. Strange how this kind of stuff occur so often. Here's some more incorrect translations, starting with the one you pointed out:

  • Brood Chamber displays the Corruped Prince Vetarex's name as "Wailing Archfiend" in the Play Infographic.
  • Snowjade Fortress uses the Korean map's translation.
  • Drowning Deeps dungeon uses an incorrect name upon entering the dungeon, namely "Drown Out".
  • The Heart Nebula Stone's tooltip from the Blade & Soulmate event use an incorrect item description, "Reduces Soul Upgrade Costs" rather than Heart.
  • "Sealed Hive Queen Heart" is called "Sealed Hive Queen Soul".
  • Stage 10 Necklace acquired from Temple of Elvuium and Scion's Keep uses an incorrect naming for the Atrophy effect by calling it "Weakness".
  • The Chat Setting's option for received damage is called "My Damage". Not exactly incorrect, but "My Received Damage" would make a lot more sense.
  • Damage received from Blinding Storms in the Grand Celestial Emperor encounter is called "Dazzling Beauty Storm".
  • The "Dungeon In Progress" in Character Status (P) displays the Corruped Prince Vetarex name as "Brood Prince Vetarex".
  • The Dungeon In Progress in Character Status (P) displays "The Peacekeeper"'s name as "Peacekeeper".
  • Voice-lines in the event dungeon Hongsil's Workshop use voice-lines from an incorrect NPC.
  • General Moyun in the Hongmoon Training Room (F12) is called General Mo when spawning the boss.
  • The Play Infographic uses "The Hive Queen" as the final boss's name, rather than "Hive Queen".
  • Lastly, and probably most importantly, the Martial Tome is a mess. Really. Not just the translations provided by NCWEST, but also because there's a complete lack of basic formatting. Adding a Bulleted List, like I did here, would be fantastic for us to understand what our skills actually do.


I'll try to update this list if I find anything else.

Updating the thread with some more mistakes:

  • Corrupted Prince Vetarex's name is displayed as Brood Prince Vetarex in the Daily Quest.
  • The Peacekeeper's message "The Peacekeeper creates a barrier around the target of Binding Stare" is missing a blank.
  • "Blackram Supply Chain" is displayed as "Leviathan's Horde" on the World Map.
  • "E. Fleet Supply Chain" is displayed as "Leviathan's Siege" on the World Map.

Before going further - thanks for taking this post into account NC! I've seen a bunch of the errors I pointed out being fixed. The game feels a lot more genuine when the feedback given really gets changed. :)

  • The "Pride" pedestal used to summon Kaari Lord in Cold Storage refers to Orb of Ascension as "Black Rose Orb".
  • Frozen Feather's tooltip description refers to the item as "Black Rose Feather".
  • Blade Dancer's Thundering Blade skill "Fatal Blade" uses incorrect skill requirements.
    • Fatal Blade's tooltip states that it requires "Accumulation Stacks"
    • The class-specific UI refers to it as "Electric Spirits"
    • The Status Effect Icons refers to it as "Bladepoint"
  • The Equipment Upgrade Path feature refers to "Awakened Skyreach Gloves - Stage1" as "Unbound Skyreach".
  • Blossom Orb's tooltip refers to the Blossoming Soul event as "Cherry Blossom event".

  • The new UI question mark tooltip in the Hongmoon Store says "But a variety of items [...]" rather than Buy.
  • Legendary Orb from the Legends Reborn event is called Killshot Coin in the Received Items menu.
  • Character Info's Skills feature when not viewing the upgradable skills says for example "2Level" and "4Level" for the level requirement for each skill rather than, for example, "Level 5".

Another update:

  • Sogun's Lament and Desolate Tomb at the Cardinal Gates are displayed as Lonely Bastion and Tomb of the Exiles on the World Map.
  • Brood Chamber's Vetarex encounter calls the mechanic orbs spawned from the Blood Condensers "Brood Orbs" in the message pop-up and "Demon Blood Orbs" in the Combat logs.
  • The tooltip description for the "Remove Brand" debuff in Nightfall Sanctuary's Shield Bearer encounter says you have immunity to the "Unfaithful effect", which isn't any effect from what I've seen.

  • Nightfall Sanctuary displays the first boss encounter's zone as Peaceful Burial Chamber on the World Map and Chamber of Tranquility on the mini-map.
  • Grand Celestial Emperor's buff bar displays Flamewave Circle as Flamewave Ring.
    • The buff description also refers to it as Flamewave Ring.
  • Martial Tome displays Blade Dancer's Way of the Spinning Storm as "Whistling Blade" and Way of the Thundering Blade as "Sparkling Blade".
    • These names can be seen after opening the Martial Tome to the right, without selecting a talent.
  • Thornbreaker Necklace and Darkstorm Necklace's Guide section uses different phrasing as well as different descriptions of the specializations.
  • Dragonflame Jewel and Polished Scale Fragment's Acquired from section refers to Daily Challenge Dungeons as "Dungeon of the Day Daily Quests".
  • The Elusive Merchant Exchange NPC for Scarlet Blooms features an incorrect name.

One more thing I forgot to mention:

  • Doctor Gyojak's two status effects from the attack pattern, Courtesan and Devastation, are misnamed. Courtesan should be Parasitic.
  • Doctor Gyojak's status effect Sowing Target's description says "The Taint Seed will be injected" rather than "The Dark Seed will be injected".
  • The dynamic Quest Lord it Over is missing a quest description.
  • Nightfall Sanctuary Soul Shield 7 and 8's Acquired from tooltip refers to Grand Celestial Emperor as Grand Celestial King.
  • Spinderling's poison debuff in Hollow's Heart is called Poisoned instead of Poison. Debuffs are not meant to be descriptive terms of what you are, but rather what you have.
  • Sealed Raven King's Soul's Aquired from tooltip refers to General Moyun/General Shuna and Raven King as Kosa Skybreak Spire.

  • Stormbringer Soul's Guide section of the tooltip refers to Hongmoon Soul - Stage 6 rather than Hongmoon Soul - Stage 1
