German Leak Translated: Sentinels and Keepers!

I've translated the wording leaked from the German site and using Google Translate this is what the list shows, note that only some are Keepers while most are considered Sentinels, so chances are these are not the full/finished status for them.

Woah! Nice work there.
So, maybe the water and fire ones are special?
What could this mean?!?

Google Translate isn't the most reliable source.

If they're really called sentinels, there better be a combination model where they become a giant purple robot.

It still remains to be protector, I think. They mean pretty much the same thing.

This is my reasoning.

I suppose I was right about the Protectors/Sentinels being some sort of foot soldiers.

I speak German, so yeah @Ekorak is right . Their names are all the same, "H├╝ter" means both sentinel and protector.

Ok well I just translated it, not saying it's correct, though I'm 1/4th German, I should know this LoLz.

Still, it could be a regional thing, as so far for English we've seen defender.

DEFENDER FACTORY! We build Defenders.

In German there is no real difference in the meanings of protector and defender, even though the German words themselfs are different. Protector translates to "Besch├╝tzer/H├╝ter" and defender translates to "Verteidiger", but in the end all three words mean the same. The only real difference is when they are preferably used:
Besch├╝tzer is used in case of a more dangerous situation.
H├╝ter is used in rarely in general, the only case when you kind of have to use it, is when you are talking about a herd of animals.
Verteidiger is used when you are talking about a inanimate object.
It's the same thing with almost every word which has a meaning similar to protector, defender, guardian etc. They all have a preferred translation, but can be swapped and everyone will still understand you.

Sentinel sounds... good. And there is some purple on the Earth Defender/Protector/Sentinel, so...
