The translation thus far.

01 attack ON titan
02 The Reluctant Heroes
03 eye-water
04 Three-dimensional Maneuvering
05 counter/attack-mankind
06 army⇒G♂
07 Bird in a Cage
08 DOA
09 凸】♀】♂】←巨人
10 E/M/A
11 Giants ~ Extermination
12 Building Blocks
13 Everyday
14 XL-TT
15 Call your name
16 omake-pfadlib

The two red ones are the weirder ones that use symbols.

The deciphered ones thus far:
4. 立body機motion
= 立体機動 (Three-dimensional Maneuvering)

7. Vogel im Kafig
= Bird in a Cage

12. Bauklotze
= Building Blocks

13. 2chi城
= 日常 (Everyday)

11. 巨♀~9地区
= 巨人~駆逐 (Giants ~ Extermination)

I think 6 and 9 are pictographs
first one must represent army that does "go" to war (mainly men)
second one must represent three walls attacked by titans and defended by men (cf. tr6)
then women (and children) and probably a castle to mean royalty

I guess E/M/A stands for Eren/Mikasa/Armin, no idea for XL-TT

Extra-Large Titan = XL-TT?

Yeah, that's what I thought for E/M/A and XL-TT too. And then DOA is probably Dead or Alive but could also be Dead on Arrival (they both work in the context of the anime).

So, then, I guess the pictograph should be left as is for 9? I guess the 巨人 should be translated though.

Also if XL-TT is Extra-Large Titan then I suppose 巨人 should be translated as Titans (though the producers of anime translate it as Giants).

Which leaves us with:
01 attack ON titan
02 The Reluctant Heroes
03 eye-water
04 Three-dimensional Maneuvering
05 counter/attack-mankind
06 army ⇒ G♂
07 Bird in a Cage
08 DOA
09 凸] ♀] ♂] ← Titans
10 E/M/A
11 Titans ~ Extermination
12 Building Blocks
13 Everyday
14 XL-TT
15 Call your name
16 omake-pfadlib

They do translate it has Giants and not Titans? Sounds odd

Yeah, they do. In the first episode there was a sign that labelled the area outside the walls as the "Giant Field". Not referring to the size of the field, of course.

Also, I saw Sawano tweeted this pic: https://twitter.com/sawano_nZk/statu...12747865051136

You can't see much but it looks like there's some minor differences in the tracklist he has. Like the first track you can see it doesn't say "attack" but "əˈtæk" and in the fifth track the "o" is accented. I wonder if it will be printed that way or not.

Edit: Apparently so. Now it looks even more like a Sawano tracklist. http://www.shingeki.tv/music/soundtrack.php

I don't think the reasons in that discussion apply to this?

There are some 60 albums beginning with the "" part. Let's see the English album title on the scans first (when they're available of course) and make changes after that if necessary.

09 凸] ♀] ♂] ← Titans
Manga spoilers next.
In manga were battle between female (Annie) and male (Eren) type of titans. I bet that the name of this track is connected to it.

CDjapan has actually romanized names for those all of the tracks that aren't in english, if it would help on translating them;

4. 立body機motion RITTAI KIDOU
6. army ⇒ G♂ ARMY ATTACK
9. 凸】♀】♂】←巨人 KYOJIN SHINKOU
11. 巨♀〜9地区 MEGATA KYOJIN KUCHIKU
13. 2chi城 2 CHI JOU
