Dwarf Language: English to Khazalid Dictionary

This English to Khazalid dictionary is intended to make it easier for those searching for a specific word or for a specific translation without having to skim the Khazalid lexicon all the time in search of it.

Some of the translations are an aproximation as several concepts of Dwarfish culture are hard to translate literally. The translations given however should make it easy to understand the word if not the underlying context of it.

It is also intended to be a kind of 'living document', to be expanded upon as GW releases new words and phrases and to added to as well by the community.

Have fun browsing through it!
