Leave it to Zelda fans to fix the Zelda timeline. And leave it to Zelda fans to undertake yet another laborious task: translating the in-game lingo.


In the Zelda games, you see Hylian, the language written throughout the Zelda games. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, the most recent Zelda title, features a new type of Hylian that was dubbed by some as "too ancient to translate".
