I loathe paraphrasing on anything that is not an unquestionable historical fact with in DA canon because wording and phrasing is extremely important due to the fact that unreliable narrators exist. Paraphrasing leads to people claiming stuff like "ancient elves were beings of sublime beauty!!!!!1111" because the fact that it's an unfounded claim by Solas gets lost in translation.
Please don't paraphrase if you can cite or quote.
I've also started gathering and annotating any modding-related knowledge in the nexus wiki.
