    English - Spanish
    Amazon = Amazon
    Assassin = Asesino
    Barbarian = Barbaro
    Druid = Druid
    Necromancer = ?
    Paladin = Paladin
    Sorceress = Bruja?

    English - Cantonese Chinese

    Amazon = Dai Bor Mui Mui (literally means big breasted girl)
    Assassin = Hung Sau (murderer)
    Barbarbarian = Dai Jek Lo (big man)
    Druid = ? Tew Yao? (when you dont know what to call someone, you call them tew yao in cantonese)
    Necromancer = (Mor Suet Si)
    Paladin = (Huk Gwai)
    Sorceress = (Lui Mor)

    Its not exact translation, but thats what most cantonese ppl in my opinion would classify these classes.

    Are these official translations? 'coz they look different from the names I can find on Chinese d2 forums. What I can find are:
    Amazon = Ya Ma Xun
    Assassin = Ci Ke
    Barbarian = Ye Man Ren
    Druid = De Lu Yi
    Necromancer = Nan Wu/Wu Shi
    Paladin = Shen Qi Shi
    Sorceress = Nv Wu
    Or like this if you can read Chinese.

    my mandarin is only so-so, but i think most of those tranlations done by both of you are correct. The only disagreement I have is with Barbarian = Ye Man Ren. Typically, you call someone Ye Man Ren when theyre being stubborn or very mean. I think the phrase just describes someone who is mean, and does not refer to a barbarian. Since my mandarin isnt too good, I could be wrong tho.

    2: 'Moordenaar' is a killer, whereas an Asassin kills for money, ergo 'Huurmoordenaar' (rent-killer, killer for rent).

    4: Druïde [/nitpick] :p

    5: 'Herrijzer' ~= resurecter. Thus you would reduce the necromancer to a sumoner. Difficult this one though, I don't think the dutch has a good synonym for 'necromancer'.

    6: Seigneur? 'Paladin' is generally used as 'one of twelve knights of Charlemagne', in dutch, 'Paladijn' means 'loyal knight', elite chivalrous fighter. Seigneur seems to be more general, my dictionary gives 'noble lord'.
