Freixenet a.k.a. Zywiecki? TNG 23:05, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

Hmmm, not that i know of, but the Polish wiki would be the best place to check. — Game widow 23:15, 4 April 2009 (UTC)
I also found out that he was once cursed and turned into a cormorant. Is that what you mean? — Game widow 17:33, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
the description and history match but the name is considerably different in the spanish translation then. Guess it has something to do with there being a well-known brand of champagne named 'Freixenet' that they didn't use it and went with a random polish name instead... thanksTNG 23:16, 11 April 2009 (UTC)
There seems to be no accounting for the tastes of translators. I have my own issues with Danusia Stok's translations into English. But I would disagree with the translator on that one. I am positive that Sapkowski knew full well that there is a champagne by the same name and it's probably part of the joke, after all, Freixenet is a pretty comical character overall. — Game widow 00:08, 12 April 2009 (UTC)
