Draenei is the name of the language used by all types of draenei from Outland or Azeroth, including Broken, Lost Ones and uncorrupted draenei. It is likely most of the language is derived from the original dialect of Eredun, but some of it may be derived from native languages of Draenor. The uncorrupted 'Exiled Ones' speak Draenei and Common.

Draenei primer (official translations)

Here are a few Draenei phrases and words, for which the translations have been officially confirmed by Blizzard:

  • "Achal hecta" = "Good day".[1] Said by Broken.
  • "Archenon poros" = "Good fortune"[2]
  • "Ardonsha kaikaldos" = "In the Light, we triumph". Spoken by Yrel.
  • "Dioniss aca" = "Safe journey"[3]
  • "Draenei" = "Exiled Ones"[4]
  • "Draenor" = "Exiles' Refuge"[4]
  • "Goblin" = Roughly translates to "Parasite"[5]
  • "Krokul" = "Broken"[6]
  • "Krona ki cristorr!" = "The Legion will fall!"[2]
  • "Kurenai" = "Redeemed"[7]
  • "Man'ari" = "Unnatural beings".[8] Previously, it didn't have a direct translation, referring to "something that is hideously and fundamentally wrong".[9] The draenei use this term to describe demonic eredar, corrupted orcs and other minions of the Burning Legion; similar to the use of orcish word "dae'mon". "Demon" is probably an appropriate translation.
  • "Ma-no icta!"[10] = "Double your efforts!"[11]
  • "Pheta vi acahachi!"[12] - "Light give me strength!"[3]
  • "Sha'tar" = "Born from light"[13]
  • "Shattrath" = "Dwelling of light"[13]
  • "Fanlin'Deskor" = "Amber Skies over Wondrous Rock"[14]
  • "Sha" = "Light". It is used in a contextual sense and not referring to the Holy Light.[15] Not to be confused with the sha, the manifestations of negative emotions found in Pandaria.

Draenei translator

This is the list of words created by the in-game language parser. It shares words with Draconic, Eredun (Demonic) and Titan parser lists, though there are some differences. Draenei cannot understand Demonic.

Note: The language algorithm used by the in-game "translator" merely makes the words look like Draenei. It does not actually translate words. Therefore, translated in-game speech isn't true Draenei. It is not certain if these words are true words in the Draenei language or not.
