"Überwald" as translation for Transsylvania... I'm from Austria. I'd much rather translate it as "Hinterwald", which MIGHT actually be where the term derived (pure speculation on my part). "Überwald" is more like Overwood, not Transwood.
No, German aristocrats were pretty non-existent in most parts of the Eastern Europe. The association of the German with Uberwald comes from the fact, that Transilvania, popularized by the seminal Bram Stoker's novel was a part of Austro-Hungarian Empire, where a large part of nobility (and virtually all _ruling_ nobility) was of Germanic origin.
