Welcome back to Translation Time! This is going to be another multi-parter, covering the classes of Dragon Warrior VII. First up, the classes themselves.

Basic human classes:
Warrior - 戦士 - senshi - Warrior
Fighter - 武闘家 - butouka - Martial Artist
Mage - 魔法使い - mahoutsukai - Wizard
Cleric - 僧侶 - souryo - Priest
Dancer - 踊り子 - odoriko - Dancer
Thief - 盗賊 - touzoku - Thief
Bard - 吟遊詩人 - ginyuushijin - Troubadour
Mariner - 船乗り - funanori - Sailor
Shepherd - 羊飼い - hitsujikai - Shepherd
Jester - 笑わせ師 - warawaseshi - Comedian


Intermediate human classes:
Dragoon - バトルマスター - BATORUMASUTA- - Battlemaster
Ranger - 魔法戦士 - mahousenshi - Magic Warrior
Sage - 賢者 - kenja - Sage
TeenIdol - スーパースター - SU-PA-SUTA- - Superstar

Tamer - 魔物ハンター - mamono HANTA- - Monster Hunter
Pirate - 海賊 - kaizoku - Pirate
Paladin - パラディン - PARADIN - Paladin


Advanced human classes:
Godhand - ゴッドハンド - GODDOHANDO - Godhand
Summoner - 天地雷鳴士 - tenchiraimeishi - Heaven & Earth Thunderer

I'm not really sure of this one...it's literally "heaven earth thunder master," but I have no idea of how to translate it without being clunky. The 3DS translation uses "Druid," which I was actually considering as a translation for this at one point, simply based on the flavor text for it I've seen in some places suggesting that it's similar to a D&D druid. But at the same time, it's still not quite accurate, so I decided against it. Any ideas for a better translation would be very welcome.
 
Hero - 勇者 - yuusha - Hero

Basic monster classes:
Slime - スライム - SURAIMU - Slime
Hork - くさった死体 - kusatta shitai - Rotting Corpse
EvlTurtle - エビルタートル - EBIRUTA-TORU - Evil Turtle
JewelBag - おどる宝石 - odoru houseki - Dancing Jewels
Florajay - はなカワセミ - hana KAWASEMI - Flower Kingfisher
Wyvern - キメラ - KIMERA - Chimera

I prefer Wyvern to Chimera for this enemy and its palette swaps, simply because it looks more like a wyvern than a chimera.

Healer - ホイミスライム - HOIMISURAIMU - Hoimi Slime
LizardMan - リザードマン - RIZA-DOMAN - Lizardman
BombCrag - ばくだん岩 - bakudan iwa - Bomb Rock
Lipsy - リップス - RIPPUSU - Lips

Berserker - バーサーカー - BA-SA-KA- - Berserker
Dumbira - ダンビラムーチョ - DANBIRAMU-CHO - Broadsword Mucho


Intermediate monster classes:
Andreal - アンドレアル - ANDOREARU - Andreal
Possibly named after the Goetic demon Andrealphus.

CurseLamp - のろいのランプ - noroi no RANPU - Cursed Lamp

DrakSlime - ドラゴスライム - DORAGOSURAIMU - Dragoslime

One of two monster classes based on a boss.

EvilWell - いどまじん - ido majin - Well Daemon

Advanced monster classes:
WoePriest - ダークビショップ - DA-KUBISHOPPU - Dark Bishop

GigaMute - ギガミュータント - GIGAMYU-TANTO - Giga Mutant
PlatKing - プラチナキング - PURACHINAKINGU - Platinum King
Esterk - エビルエスターク - EBIRUESUTA-KU - Evil Esturk

Esturk is a recurring superboss in the Dragon Quest series. This monster's Japanese rank titles and the fact that it's a palette swap of a mechanical boss suggest that it's intended to be a mechanical replica of Esturk.
 
RainHawk - にじくじゃく - niji kujaku - Rainbow Peacock
EvilMech - デスマシーン - DESUMASHI-N - Death Machine

The other monster class based on a boss.
