I swear we seriously need a Greek person to join the translation team as a consultant....

These names and their spelling...

I mean seriously...how do you spell the first word in Shakespeare's Logismoi?!

Romaji says "aspiza".
Closest word to aspiza is ἀσπίς [aspis], which comes from the Ancient Greek ἀ- + σπίζω [a + spizo].

Don't take my word for it. The only link between "rejection/refusal" which is the kanji used in the Japanese name for "aspiza" and [aspis] is the idea that "a shield rejects things".

Oh, and it turns out that the Aspiza Phylargyria is in fact a shield. Lol.

In volume 2-B it was written as アスザ・フィラルジア, so it must be Asbiza/Asviza Philargyria? (p282, v2-A)
Or could be a typo? They should have fixed it already since I have the 5th edition and it's still written as アスビザ.

拒絶の強欲

Since Philargyria means greed/avarice<強欲>, then Aspiza/Asviza must mean rejection<拒絶>, or similar.

Yeah, the normal drive acts as a shield. Overdrive drains attack into MP haiki. <-hax

Yeah...I'm doing the part which has Horako using it to fuel her Maska Orgi shot now...

Why do I have a Greek dictionary tab open when I'm supposed to be translating Japanese....

I can't find Aspiza in any dictionary....or Asvisa for that matter

Both the Japanese Wikipedia and the Horizon atwiki use アスピザ.
I'll try to look if "asbisa" or "asvisa" will give anything.

"asvisa", by the way, will not work because the Greeks have no V.
I think "aspisa" is our best option.

It's pretty hellish to me when you have to do research over and over again and not just bulldoze through the pages. I'll surely get sick of it.

There's a massive terminology page that I feel like I made for nothing now.

I don't know if this means anything

Greek has no F. They only have PH, which is also in Philosophy, Sophomore and hemophilia.
So Filargyria is actually Philargyria. The English Wikipedia agrees.

Signframe for Far East, Cadena Firma for Tres Espana, ゼニカーレ・フィアンマ (segnale fiamma?) for KPA Italia, etc. etc. How are we supposed to keep the meaning and nuance in English!

Edit: on the other hand, I think Horizon in itself is a highly multidisciplinary subject. It's like an amalgamation of foreign languages + science + literature! You get to learn all sorts of things while trying to learn about Horizon ww
