When you go to scandinavia it becomes apparent why hill = defense. Not exactly hilly until you get to Norway. If you have the Russians invading every 50 years and before that the vikings on the other side. You look for hills where you can find them. :-)

Not saying that has anything to do with the translation but ....yeah that's my wild guess.
