Etymology and other languages
|Names, etymology and in other regions|
|Language||Name||Definition, etymology and notes|
|English||Armored Sword||In gameplay, for space restrictions the name is shortened to "Armr Sword".|
|Sword Armor||Used in the Genealogy of the Holy War and Thracia 776 fan translations.|
|Japanese|| • ソードアーマー
| • Sword Armor; this name was used until Thracia 776.|
• Officially romanized as Sword Armor; literally "sword heavy knight". In Radiant Dawn, all Japanese class names are spelled primarily in kanji (i.e. 槍重装兵), with a foreign-language name in katakana applied as furigana (i.e. ランスアーマー) and used as the basis for the romanized name in the class roll.
|Spanish||Espada acorazado||Armored sword|
|French||Chevalier épée||Sword knight|
|German||Schwertkampfer||Swordfighter. This does not match the pattern with the German names of the other armored classes, Lanzenmeister and Axtmeister, because the name "Schwertmeister" had already been taken by the Swordmaster class.|
|Italian||Armigero spada||Sword armiger|
