Translations of Languages within Game of Thrones

Even if you speak English you will find subtitles in Game of Thrones. Why is this the case for an English language series? Because languages have been created for characters within the series.

The key translator in the series in Missandei, who begins as a slave translator in episode 1 of season 3.

So language translation has still been a challenge for the actors. They must know the meaning of the words so as to be able to act accordingly, but the words they speak only exist within Game of Thrones.

The only question I have is whether scenes were ever given another take due to pronunciation?
