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.

4.Druid=Druide
5.Necromancer=Herrijzer
6.Paladin=Seigneur
7.Sorceress=Tovenares
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'.
