Belovedness / Grace[edit source]

As I know, there weren't any official English translation of "Pani Jeziora"' so instead writing elaborates about fan-translation, you can simply change "Your Belovedness" into "Your Grace" ;)

Yeah I know that, but whoever wrote that had to have some good reasons. If it stands out that much or seems too... dunno, "elaborative" please do correct it and remove the note - if it only would look better. Personally, I tend not to remove things. Maybe here it's wrong though... But yeah, in any and all translations the way the Duchess is entitled in PL would be "Your Grace" in EN. Even google translate (which handles PL -> EN so, so, SO very poorly) translates this one correctly, I checked out of pure curiosity.

If Your Grace is more correct, then by all means change it. All i have to go on is the French translation "Sa Grandeur" which is roughly "Your Greatness", which is again, totally awkward. Your Grace is at least used and not awkward :) — Game widow (talk) 21:02, 15 December 2014 (UTC)
Yeah the French translation of this title seems rather missed. The core meaning of the title is to covey that the recipient is kind, merciful, gracious, benevolent, benign, kind-hearted (not great as grand) and so on. "Your Grace" is the best, not artificially sounding english term for this honorific that I know of, I'm not saying there isn't a better one in existence :P. In that case I'll change it and remove my scribbles.

Your/Her Benevolence, would also do — Game widow (talk) 01:37, 16 December 2014 (UTC)
I thought of that one too, still decided "Your Grace" fits better. I'm no pro translator (clearly) nor a linguist so my opinion is as good as any I guess. Most dictionaries though, use "your grace" as the equivalent.
