No, I didn't use any mods.


I'll report some issues in the current translations of the unit name, which is uncommon or a bit weird for Japanese.
There are so many corrections that I will put a list at the bottom of this post.

1)There is no need to add "no" in the unit name

In many of the current translations of the unit name, "の(no)" is added between culture/nation and type of troop, e.g. 帝国の軍団兵(Imperial Legionary, Empire+の+Legionary), アセライのマムルーク斧兵(Aserai Mameluke Axeman, Aserai+の+Mameluke Axeman) and so on, but "の" is not necessary to add in the unit name in my opinion.
"A の B" is "B of A", so 帝国の軍団兵 is "Legionary of the Empire" or "The Empire's Legionary", not "Imperial Legionary".
Technically, this 帝国の軍団兵 is not quite wrong but it's also a little redundant for Japanese.

Therefore, almost all "の" in the unit name should be deleted.

2)Translation of "culture+suffix"

Culture names in the unit names have a suffix such as Sturgia-Sturgian, Vlandia-Vlandian and Battania-Battanian to make them adjective.
Some unit names are translated as "culture name+人", meaning "the culture's people".
In Japanese, it's more common not to add "人" unless it's obvious that the word is "person/people".

- "Battanian Traveler" is translated as バタニア人の旅人 or バタニア人旅行者, "culture name+人(+の)+something".
- "Battanian Skirmisher", "Battanian" has various implications: Battanian people, Battanian soldier, Battanian army etc.
So, in this case, the translation of "Battanian Skirmisher", バタニア散兵 is better than バタニア人の散兵.


- In principle, English words are translated into Japanese, and non-English words or words derived from non-English are transliterated/transcripted into Japanese Katakana alphabet.

Crossbowman - 弩兵(Crossbowman)
Mercenary - 傭兵(Mercenary)
Mameluke - マムルーク(Mamurūku), not 奴隷戦士(Slave Warrior)
Kheshig - ケシク(Keshiku), not 近衛兵(Guard)

The only exception to the above example is Vlandian Banner Knight. As far as I can think of, "Banner Knight" does not have a proper literal translation, so it's just "Katakanaized", ウランジア・バナーナイト(Uranjia Banānaito).

- "Veteran" is translated as 古参 or 古参兵(veteran soldier) in a military-related term.

- Also, "Recruit" is translated as 新兵 in a military-related term.

- It is avoided that the same Kanji character is used multiple times in a single word.

- It is also avoided that the word for the same type of things is used multiple times in a noun.

e.g. Vlandian Militia Veteran Crossbowman
Current Translation:
ウランジア熟練弩(lit. Veteran Crossbowman of Vlandian Militiaman)
Corrected Translation:
ウランジア古参弩民兵(lit. Vlandian Veteran Crossbow-Militiaman)
