From Gineipaedia, the Legend of Galactic Heroes wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

This page contains a list of mistranslations present in Legend of Galactic Heroes fan subs. It is not meant to be a criticism of any fan-sub group; rather, its purpose is as a resource for fans who may be confused by references contained in the subtitles, and perhaps even as a tool to improve future fan translations.

Although many proper names in the series appear to have been mistranslated in the original subtitles and on-screen maps and diagrams (for instance, Attemborough instead of Attenborough), these are considered for the purposes of Gineipaedia to be canon, and should not be included here. Additionally, this list should not contain references to minor errors in spelling, punctuation, or grammar; nor should it contain any references to simple matters of style (for instance, Central Anime have made a conscious decision to use the LaserDisc name spellings over the DVD spellings).

Time stamps should refer to the DVD version when available; LaserDisc time stamps should be used only for errors specific to LaserDisc translations.


Legend of Galactic Heroes (OVA)


The references to Otho von Braunschweig, Reinhard von Lohengramm, and Klaus von Lichtenlade as Princes are incorrect. The correct title is Duke. Prince is accurately used in relation to Prince Alec.
