It is very funny to see the good names, like we are reading an ancient book. And they are all translated well for Chinese client, many familiar gods name from western countries, wild animals which make you feel blood burning and raising fighting will. Nice job, CCPPirate

Actually, all my standard Drakes are called "Mallard" ;)

CCP Greyscale: As to starbases, we agree it's pretty terrible, but we don't want to delay the entire release just for this one factor.

actually, Luminaire is more the lamp then the light in it. Verge is also a Yard in english.. Botane is not a french word in itself, but I guess it can be related to Botanic, which relate to nature things.
