In the cutscene of the ending of scenario 6 in the William Wallace campaign it says Falkrik, the correct name is Falkirk. The text and the narrator are wrong. I also post this on the Spanish - Spain forum
En la campaña de Atila, el narrador y el texto correspondiente hablan de “Los campos/batalla de Cataluña”, cuando en realidad es “campos Cataláunicos”. Esto pasa en las misiones 3,4,5 y 6, si no me equivoco
Hello AoE team, I like to report an issue in the mission 3 of the “Dracula” campaing, it is about mixed audio, so almost all the in game audio clips dont correspond to the text displayed. I replayed the mission at least 4 times and the issue was present every time. Thanks for your help.

Spanish - Latin America Language
(*If you ask me why I suggest these changes is because I am from this place (I do belong to what is left from this culture) and I have studied on first hand about this topic, so you cannot trust in vandalized Wikipedia por such information)
(**I have just started with this campaign, so I think there are plenty of errors to take care of, either with people names, locations or even history itself)
(***I do speak fluent English, Spanish and Quechua languages, so I can provide better assistance if required, I am usually in AOE discord room #age-technical-support by @Rosiel)
Those are not errors.
You should remember that the game is translated to spanish, spanish language has its own words. Cuzco, Huiracocha, Inca and a long etc are written with spanish vowels and consonants if you were using russian language you’d see cyrillic words.
I am afraid you are the one that cannot see the problem here. All the errors I highlighted are related to mispellings, even most of them have been declared unofficial by Peruvian ministry of Culture.
i.e. Cusco (The word Cuzco was imposed by Spaniards in 1534 although the original name was Qosqo (because they could not pronounce it correctly). In the end, The government of Peru declared that the correct typologhy is Cusco in 1986).
If you want to make a different comparisson, you can see the example of Macedonia and FYROM (both are supposed to be correct by the rest of the world, but if you ask a Macedonian about it, they will tell you the cultural differences and how it become even offesive to use FYROM to refer them). I think may be talking about the same matter in here, and of course the information provided by Wikipedia is sometimes inaccurate related to this cultural-influenced word meaning.
I think certain corrections must be done in the versions of those languages that use the Latin script
In the same way, I do not wanna waste my time with someone who has no idea about these things. Cusco is the name of the city, cuzco is a word used to refer a small filthly dog, so please make correct use of the words. You can check the official decision here:
Age of Empire is and has been a great source of general knowledge for an enormous community since the very first AoE 1, so it cannot promote incorrect names or tergiversed history as its prime objective is to be a RTS game as close as possible to human history.
Dude I’m Spanish and I know what in talking about, I’m student of Hispanic philology and, looking for age of empires like an accurate historical game is being a bit naive XD.
Good luck with your madness.
well, now it makes sense. Spaniards did their best to destroy Inka’s heritage, including original names and language itself. I do not think you can make an objective opinion in this matter.
The only thing I am asking for is to let AoE development team realize the several inaccuracies in Pachacutec’s campaign and if they can fix it; they have done a great job before with other campaigns and I believe they can do it again. I will keep posting all the things I consider innacurate as respect to my culture and my people.
