So I was just doing the Manaan flashpoint with some people, and during the conversation with the scientist I started understanding words coming from him. The more I paid attention to it the more I could understand....because you guys (BW) had someone that was most def an english speaker read Hungarian. Heavily accented and butchered but still understandable. That cracked me up and made my day... funny stuff.

Kolto don't mean anything. It's just when they speak that seemingly gibberish language is an english speaker with a distorted voice speaking hungarian lol. It's funny. Although pronounced other way Költö means poet or even a bard.

So is what they are saying anywhere close to what the subtitles show them saying, or just random words?

That's a nice little detail, I remember reading that Huttese was based off Quechua (the language of the ancient Inca Empire and still spoken in several South American countries) while Sullustan is actually a local language from Kenya.

Can you make sense of what they're saying in Hungarian or it's all random words?

I'll have to listen to the full convo again but it seemed to be close to what the subtitle said. some words seemed a little out of place though I do remember hearing judgement and i don't think it belonged, but I'll listen to it again and see.

quoting myself lol now that I', listening to it again it seems pretty random. But it's really hard to understand for me because it's so butchered lol.

It is a cool thing to build a ingame language based of something real, then they can create more dialogues with it.

This is actually really cool to hear, assuming that its a correct translation. During Knights of the Old Republic, I hated the Selkath language's same lines being used over and over. A long paragraph could have the exact same sound as the sentence "We do?"

I mean... There's no change I'll ever understand it. Still cool, though!
Ooh! In Elder Scrolls Online, I get magic spells and colossal PvP! That sounds cool, but one question, where do I get a lightsaber?
