Can someone tell me what the english names for the following weapons is?
- Pulsblasterkanone (3 profiles: 10", 20" and 30")
- Zerstörerrakete (Stormsurge's missile)
- Ionenbeschleuniger (Riptide)
- Ionenkanone (Hammerhead)
- Zyklischer Ionensturmblaster (Ghostkeel)
- Zyklischer Ionenblaster (Crisis/Commander)
Maybe we can even do a whole list. 1:1 translations don't work.
Have you seen other discrepancies in even other languages?

I just know a few words here and there from my interest in WWII If you want to trade your German Index for my English one, let me know! (Not really, I'm only kidding. Postage to and from Australia to Europe would probably cost as much as a new Index )

Index Xenos II, page 60
XV25 Stealth Battlesuits
The equipment options say a Shas'vre may take a markerlight with multi-tracker.
Then below it there's the corresponding rule but it describes the target lock while having "multi-tracker" as title.
I guess I just have to replace multi-tracker with target lock but I wanted to be sure.

German Index has two those two wargear options:
Feuerleitsystem - 2p / 10p for SS, GK: no penalty for moving and firing heavy/advancing and firing assault weapons + advance and fire with rapid fire weapons
Multiple Zielerfassung - 6p / 12p for GK, RT, SS: reroll to-hit rolls of 1 when firing all weapons on the same target
Multi-tracker - 2p/10p - effect of Multiple Zielerfassung
Target Lock - 6p/12p - effect of Feuerleitsystem
Is this a translation error from the english to german Index or an error in Battlescribe? Based on the XV25 entry (and the system names), I'd guess Battlescribe is correct on this one and they messed up those two systems in the german Index?

The Target Lock is the one about moving and firing. The Multi-Tracker allows re-rolling 1s. The German book's translation seems right then, just the points are switched.
