The lexicon of the Dragon Language is only made up of around 650 words, so naturally some English words will not have a direct word-for-word translation.

Because there is no direct word-for-word translation, you have to reword the initial thought. There are some Dovahzul words off the top of my head that you can use to convey change:

meyz (as become -- see the word entry page for in-game usage that supports this -- https://www.thuum.org/word.php?w=961)

kiin (born -- as in, something born out of this change you're trying to describe)
