  • Hello! I saw that you edited Montezuma (Civ6) adding voiced line in Nahuatl language. I was wondering, do you speak the language or copied this information from somewhere else?

    • I don't speak natively, and I know someone else has since made a much better transcription of it elsewhere (can't recall where, unfortunately, maybe in the civfanatics leader sayings thread) that I just never got around to port over. I do happen to own a grammar of the language though (it's Launey's Introduction a la Langue et a la Litterature Azteques, in PDF format), and I worked from it and an online dictionary to try and piece what Montezuma was saying.

    • Thanks for the reply!

      It's not the civfanatics thread for sure, there is only one post about Montezume there with Into and Attacked line. The rest of the lines are taken from here.

      The reason I asked was the " language is both poorly translated and pronounced" part, because it seems that the voice actor is not a native speaker at all. The same case is with Lady Six Sky, so it seems that whoever does the casting and translation in Mexico doesn't bother with it much. You can see the discussion here.

    • Mind you, it's possibly my analysis (my knowledge is theoretical and relatively poor, so it's extra hard to decipher the oral language!) is entirely wrong, but if the grammar that I deciphered from the speech is what was meant, then yes both the pronounciation and grammar are off.
