    Allegedly.

    But also, they don't exactly go outside. Any internal cultural shift toward Masri or whatever would have probably needed some upheaval for a whole city of Magi literally living under a rock to care.

    Arabic according to Avalon le Fae’s epilogue.

    Huh, so they actually noticed that happening, did they.

    I guess they had to import fresh blood at some point. Makes sense.

    Besides Arabic apparently, from the same bit in Avalon Le Faeš as well as stuff we see in the Melty Blood Back Alley Nightmare manga, Atlas uses hieroglyphics on their magic computers.

    šThe translation from the FGO Translation Project seems to have taken liberties with the script tho:

    Quote Originally Posted by Avalon Epilogue translated

    Hmm, the hieroglyphic predictions say 'No problem. Rebel. Eyelids, eyelids'.

    Sion:
    I haven't the faintest clue. Might as well be in Arabic. Well, let's ignore this too.

    わっかんねー。アラビア語でよろ。
    まあいっか、これは無視して。
    It's translated as if Sion is saying the hieroglyphs are as incomprehensible to her as Arabic, where in the original text she asks "Arabic please", implying she would understand the hieroglyphs better in that language.

    Let's just call it what it is, a mistranslation.

    Happens to the best of us.

  10. #34790
    Oh, I can fix that. Just to make clear, would the line be more accurate as "I have no clue. Arabic please. Well, let's ignore this too." ? Or is there a better way to phrase it?

    You know if we look at historical context around the area the Atlas Institute resided. Their Primary Language being Arabic isn't really that far fetch. In fact in kind of make sense in a historical context

    Personal take.

    "I have no clue. In Arabic would be nice. Oh well, let's ignore this for now."

    Reference to 日本語でよろ, short for 日本語でよろしく. It's what JP web-users use to ask foreigners to "please speak Japanese"

    Back in le old 2010 internet, 日本語でよろ was also used the same way Sion used here, when OP actually wrote something in Japanese but it made no sense to the reader.

    Guess I'll just add an exclamation mark and call it a day for localization.

    Thanks for the help everyone ^^

    Also you can expect Tunguska script on my site soon-ish before 6.5.
