Xuanyuan Jian Waizhuan: Cang zhi Tao can be translated as "The Sword of Xuanyuan Side-Story: Blue Wave". Xuanyuan is the name of an ancient sword (jian), which gave the name to the series; Wai + Zhuan literally means "outside legend"; Cang (with the preposition zhi) can mean either "blue", "green", "grey", or even "pale", depending on the context (perhaps "aquamarine color" would be appropriate in this case); Tao is "wave".
