(estonian) ära leppima = to make up (/ resolve) one's quarrel with another party
(estonian) leppimatu = one who is adamantly unwilling to make up one's quarrel with another party
(estonian) lepitamatu = one who can not be mediated / persuaded to make up one's quarrel with another party
(finnish) leppymätön = relentless, implacable = (estonian) leppimatu
There is a fine distinction between leppimatu and lepitamatu, but to me it seems that at least leppimatu and leppymätön are of the same meaning. To relent is to come to an agreement with another party. To not relent, is to refuse agreement with another party.
irreconcilable = (of ideas or statements) so different from each other that they cannot be made compatible.
