Cipher Series 1 Card Translations

Recommended Posts

I was finally able to finish translation work on all 120 known Series 1 Cipher cards. I have divided the series into easier to handle chunks below; the complete google doc is still available for referencing as well. Please let me know if you spot any errors, or things that you think might could be worded or handled better. This is a tentative work and I greatly appreciate any feedback or criticisms you might have with it, so please don't hesitate to let me know what you think! This project needs some fresh eyes, so I apologize in advance for how raw it is.

As always, I will continue to endeavor on making the translations better as well as improving the organization and usability of this compendium!

Her cost is 1, not 2. I'll check the rest later, but from what I saw of the promos and the starter deck cards, that is the only mistake I caught. And I do assume that it's super cool to use these translations for the wiki?

Thanks much for the catch, I'll update that.

Most certainly, these translations are free to use for the wiki. In fact, this project was started for the use of yall's wiki! I appreciate you asking, though. ^^

I'm sure "virgin" is the more accurate direct translation here, but in context, I'm sure what it's going for is something like "innocent female" and I feel "maiden" is a more accurate term to use.

Thanks FutureKnightX!

I've fixed these as well as a couple other errors I caught sight of while making these fixes.

You may have already seen my direct reply on the google doc itself, but I'll go ahead and post it here too just in case. In regards to the "Virgin Blade" skill name for that Lissa card: The reason I used 'Virgin' here was to further imply a connotation that the original Japanese card has which is hinting at the fact Lissa had never wielded a weapon before. The blade as well as herself were both virgins to taking people's lives, which is something I don't think Maiden quite covers. I might have taken a bit too much liberty though. The literal Japanese translation of the skill name is "Nun Who Fights", so "Maiden Fighter" is something that could close the gap between the two extremes perhaps. Maiden still carries the connotation of something just starting (a la Maiden Voyage) and Fighter sounds better as it is more technically correct than "Blade". What do you think?

Ah, yeah, that works. It's just "virgin" kinda also has a sexual component to it in English, is all, and that isn't what the card is meant to have.

I think "Maiden Who Fights" is a decent compromise. . .since "maiden" can refer to both purity (sexual or otherwise) and young women.

Yeah, that's why I picked "maiden", since it also gives off a sense of innocence and purity while avoiding sexual connotations.

And I just realized something when going through and editing that Google Document. I didn't think my suggestions were sent! XD Aubergine knows my real name lol. Well, I suppose it is fair since I know his due to that document, as well. Good luck Googling it! I don't even appear on the first page! XD

I was finally able to finish translation work on all 120 known Series 1 Cipher cards. I have divided the series into easier to handle chunks below; the complete google doc is still available for referencing as well. Please let me know if you spot any errors, or things that you think might could be worded or handled better. This is a tentative work and I greatly appreciate any feedback or criticisms you might have with it, so please don't hesitate to let me know what you think! This project needs some fresh eyes, so I apologize in advance for how raw it is.

As always, I will continue to endeavor on making the translations better as well as improving the organization and usability of this compendium!

Anyone know where I can find a Google Doc or PDF compendium of the Series 2 cards? Or do I have to refer to the Wiki?

Thanks in advance!
