Besza Riztan (WIP) Translator

Based on Dutch, Greek, and Hungarian

Besza Riztan is based on a mix of Dutch, Greek, and Hungarian. The name comes from "rizélda bészort", meaning "rarely spoken"; as you can well imagine, Besza Riztans are few in number (about only 27,000 remain after fighting in a brutal war for about 30 years. There were once about as many as the population of England), which is why their language name means this.
