From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

"Jeedai" was a mispronunciation of Jedi, commonly used by various species throughout the galaxy, most notably during the Jedi Civil War and the Yuuzhan Vong War, by the Yuuzhan Vong in the case of the latter. Nom Anor pronounced it as "Jedi," indicating the time he had spent some time in the galaxy prior to the Yuuzhan Vong War. In other cases, Jeedai may have been intended as an insult, or possibly the equivalent of a regional inflection.The Morgukai warriors Bok and Tsyr referred to Jedi as Jeedai. In the Huttese language Jeedai was their word for Jedi as well.

Behind the scenes

In Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords, Hanharr's subtitle also uses the word "Jeedai" instead of "Jedi" but since he cannot pronounce words in Basic, it's only an implication that he pronounces the word in a different manner than any other Wookiees. Vossk also uses it in Knights of the Old Republic II.

In first Marvel Comics in French , "Jeedaï" or "Djeedaï" are used to translate Jedi, as other names, in a more French line. However, this translation is no longer used in their current Expanded Universe.
