  1. I suspect Google Translate. A better description of the last category would be “Other Works”. (It’s open to anything that doesn’t fit in the other categories.)

  2. Not being satisfied with the translation offered by the site I did, in fact, obtain “Freedom” from Google Translate. From your reading, would you say it is for “works” (publications, media productions), or could it encompass the Seiun equivalent of Chris Garcia’s onstage Hugo meltdown?
